Born in Tirol in 1983, Verena Tscherner was schooled in New Zealand and then returned to Austria graduating from the University of Music, Vienna with BA Hons in 2014.
Tscherner has since made Vienna her home town, and it is this city’s streets that she returns to again and again, as the focus for her Conceptual Art and Photography. Seen through the prism of both outsider and native, Tscherners unique and exacting eye seeks the poetry in the everyday. Long walks through the city streets are where she finds the dynamics of politics, psychology and human struggle all played out. A continual search to offer the viewer alternative angles by which to reexperience the daily challenge of urban living make Tscherners work empowering both for others and herself.
