Gina Niederhumer comes from a Family of Needlewomen in Austria. She arrived in South Africa aged 19 for a gap-year and stayed. Her work deals often with what it means to live between two worlds…between north and south…between past and present.
Gina uses art to tell her story. The ‘thread-work’ becomes a literal and metaphoric means to ‘mend’ and repair her personal narrative.
Gina Niederhumer has a Masters degree in Fine Arts and lives and works in Cape Town. She is a full-time artist and art-facilitator. Her work is exhibited widely.
