Christian Rösner


Christian Rösner was born in 1969 in Bamberg. As from 1991, he studied sculpture with Professor Höpfner at the Academy for Visual Arts in Nuremberg, where he was nominated master student in 1997.

Later lectureship at the academy and university of applied sciences in Nuremberg. Diverse exhibitions for example in the “Galerie an der Pinakothek der Moderne" in Munich. He received the first art award of the “Nürnberger Nachrichten” and the Wolfram-von-Eschenbach award for effort.

During the Bachwoche 2005, Rösner presented a collection of graphics and a group of figures in the Kronenhof representing 7 head-high dancers that were manufactured from poplar wood with a chainsaw. The contorting figures arranged in a closed loop symbolize the endlessness of human “contortions” and question them.
