Artist Bio

FORT

The German artist duo FORT consists of Alberta Niemann (born in Bremen/Germany) and Jenny Kropp (born in Frankfurt am Main/Germany). Since 2008 they have been creating installations, performances, and video installations.

FORT works with everyday objects that are copied, rearranged, or transformed. Seemingly banal ordinary moments are adapted and transferred to the exhibition space. The resulting settings, objects, and videos have a subtly surreal character, suggesting, despite their supposed familiarity, an atmosphere of eeriness, emptiness, and abandonment. Oscillating between poetic and humorous moments, the objects frequently conflict with what the viewer normally expects to see.

Recent shows include Night Shift, Kunstverein Hamburg (2018) and Casino – Forum d’art contemporain Luxembourg (2017); Limbo, Langen Foundation (2018); The School of Art, Science and Technical Classes, MOSTYN (2016); and Retired, LWL, Museum für Kunst und Kultur (2016).
