Christiany Erler, born in Brazil, studied music received a degree in the subject in her native land. For over a decade she lived in the USA, in New York City, where she learned photography at the International Center of Photography. Since 2015 she has been living and working in Germany. In 2019, she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Fine Arts of Hamburg. She is currently working on her M.F.A. at this same institution with Professors Simon Denny and Sam Durant. In her multi-media work, she deals with cultural differences and the rifts that arise from these differences, aside from focusing on displacement, fragmentation and tautological repetition.
