The French performance artist Delphine Richer is mainly interested in communication, contexts and event activity. She creates situations in which these themes can be activated and tested in interaction with visitors, the public, guests and passers-by. With the participation of the participants, art can appear and take shape.
Delphine Richer gave lectures about her artistic work in cooperation with schools in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler and Andernach and discussed with the pupils. In workshops she taught her way of working and theoretical knowledge about performance art.
Delphine Richer was born in 1983 and studied fine arts from 2005 to 2009.
In 2009 she graduated from the Superior National Fine Art School in Dijon, France. In 2010 a scholarship led her to China, where she undertook extraordinary explorations, got to know the artist scene and organized the festival "Direct-Connection-Festival" with the renowned Chinese artist Zhou Bin in 2013. Since then there has been a continuous exchange of ideas and invitations, especially to international live art festivals in China and Europe. www.delphinericher.fr
