Catherine Biocca was born 1984 in Rome (Italy) where she studied political sciences. After her BA she moved to Düsseldorf (Germany) where she joined the class of Georg Herold at the Kunstakademie and got her BA and MA in fine arts. Her practice focuses on the relation between the notion of Schadenfreude and individual perception as well as the swapping of dimensions and its reverberation onto the consideration of an art work in a formally low- fi and droll way. She participated in various national and international group and solo shows in galleries and institutions. Currently she is a resident at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam (the Netherlands).
