Cia Rinne is a poet, author and artist living outside Berlin. Born in Gothenburg, she grew up in Germany and studied philosophy and languages in Frankfurt, Helsinki and Athens. Her multilingual minimalist texts play with the phonetic shifts of meaning between languages and reduce complex philosophical and linguistic questions to tonal sequences. Recent publications include l’usage du mot (2017) as well as sentences (2019). Her performances, exhibitions and sound installations have been shown in galleries and museums internationally. Cia is the laureate of the Prix Bernard-Heidsieck-Centre Pompidou 2019.
