Christian Nappert lives and works in Leipzig in the field of photography - sound and drawing in the form of exhibitions and artist books and is concerned with spaces and their specifics towards our shared environment. Through photographing, walking and listening he tries to circle around new possible narratives. He studied Fine Arts and Media at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig (GER), ITT Dublin (IRL) and the University of Bamberg (GER). He is part of the association Euja who are engaged in making artist books and at times does sound recordings and collaborations with befriended artists (inter alia Yvon Chabrowski, Johanna Terhechte, Katrin Esser, Sarah Veit). His background in research lies in phenomena which appear on the brink of silence. Currently he works on a new body of work.
