Caro Niederer (born in Zürich 1963) is a contemporary artists who lives and works in Zürich.
Niederer works in a variety of media. Her work encompasses techniques such as painting, photography, video as well as silk tapestries. Niederer is, along with Pipilotti Rist and Sylvie Fleury, one of the most popular contemporary female Swiss artists. Human day-to-day situations from her private life and her immediate environment are the source for most of Niederer's works. These personal snapshots are then re-worked in paintings or form the template for huge hand knotted silk carpets, which the artist gets produced in China. The transformation of an image through its replication in another media is a core theme of Niederer's work. In a ongoing photo series called Interieurs Niederer photographs her sold works in situ in their new owners' homes and offices.
Recent major museums exhibitions include CAC Malaga (2006), Museum Haus Lange, Krefeld (2006), Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin (2005), Ikon Gallery, Birmingham (2005) and Kunstmuseum St. Gallen (2004).
