Caro Niederer (born 1963 in Zurich) is, along with Pipilotti Rist and Sylvie Fleury
, one of the most popular contemporary female Swiss
artists. She works in a variety of media. Her work encompasses techniques such as painting, photography, video as well as silk tapestries.
Human day-to-day situations from her private life and her immediate environment are the source for most of Niederer's works. These personal snapshots are then re-worked in paintings or form the template for huge hand knotted silk carpets, which the artist gets produced in China. The transformation of an image through its replication in another media is a core theme of her work.
In an ongoing photo series called Interieurs Niederer photographs her sold works in situ in their new owners' homes and offices.
