Sara-Lena Maierhofer (born 1982 in Freudenstadt, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. She graduated in 2011 from the Fachhochschule Bielefeld with a degree in photography and media. Her work, consisting of photographs, videos and objects, lingers between interpretation, narration, and documentation. Reoccuring subjects in her studies include identity and role play, and explores other people’s lives in general. Recent group shows include: “Figuring Out, Taking Shape, Facing In“ at the LCC, London; “Not Yet Titled“ at Westwerk, Hamburg; and “Rear View / Borders of Photography“ at the Overkant, Amsterdam. Her latest work “Dear Clark, a Portrait of a Con Man“ investigates the life and lies of Clark Rockefeller, aka Christian Gerhartsreiter, and will be on display at the Museum of Photography in Berlin beginning November 9th, 2011.
