Born 1976, Munich, lives and works in London.
Claudia Djabbari’s installations and objects reflect on how social stereotypes of living, working and housing manifest themselves in the world of things. The artist’s interest in collecting, accumulating, storing and sequencing of things appears in a neutralized reduction of the plastic means to the point of abstraction.
Re-contextualised in the gallery, Djabbari’s objects are freed from their original function. The referential reproductions function as models and are exemplary for projections, phantasms and values as well as for social rituals, codes, prominent cultural goods, and commodities.
Djabbari studied at Goldsmiths College. Recent exhibitions include The German Ambassador’s Residence (London), Rathausgalerie Kunsthalle München (Germany), Woodmill Gallery, Aichi Triennial (Japan).
