My creative path starts with observing the nature and living my life in relation to others. Questions alter in concepts, inspiring my ideas. If I find the visuality, it is like I have got a possible answer and I love to comunicate it.
I believe, and I am quite sure, that I was born from my mother's and my father's love. My father, Ulrich Gerhard, was born in Leipzig. My mother, Edeltraud, was born in Villach. They both loved nature and art.
I grew up in a beautiful garden, climbing on the top of trees and finding four clovers, having first contacts with the world of arts. Also the snow and the far horizon, seen from the mountain peaks, impressed me deeply. Since then I love the nature, the humans, the sense of aesthetic and uncompromising truth which can be found in nature's life.
Desires, dreams, dramas, imaginations, relations and different points of views, but mostly questions about life inspire me.
It makes me deeply happy if other people get emotioned and share which I would like to comunicate, reporting that autobiographical points of view can have general values and empathy happens between individuals.
Keeping my eyes open, I am still finding four clovers.
Since earliest times Regina Huebner was drawing and dancing classic ballett. In 1980 she moved to Graz, where she started to paint in big dimensions. Studies of the italian language in Perugia and Rome.
In 1985 she awarded Master of Arts in Graphic-Design at the Höhere Lehranstalt für Kunst und Design HTBLVA Graz-Ortweinschule, Graz, Austria.
In 1985 she worked for the first time with stone during a workshop, realizing a sculpture in the caves of St. Margarethen, Austria. This meant a keye experience which led her to go for one year to Carrarra, Italy, until 1986. During this period she painted on big sized, very thin papers and tissues.
In 1986 Regina Hübner moved to Rome.
In 1990 she graduated Master of Arts in Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, Italy.
During this period she preferred painting, drawing and forming plastiques, reaching lesser materical œvres since 1989 in combining and interacting her artworks with movements and projections of slides/light/shadow in ambientations.
In 1995 she gave birth to her first daughter and in 2000 she gave birth to her second daughter. Those new lifes, born out of herself, inspired the artist for many artworks and questions about time and life.
Since the 1990 Regina Hübner visualizes her ideas often with experimental photography, film and video, using also performance or working ongoings.
The silent, from the nature registered pure or elaborated sounds, artificial or uncontrolled movements like the swinging of a tree branch in the wind are often part in her creative work. Also like natural or artificial changements, interaction with animated beings -the visitors- and inanimated subjects can change the aspect of the artwork. The manuality, the handmade gestures are the growing entity of a work in progress including drawings and crafts. The concepts, basic in her artistic research is typed down in text-form. Those texts some times take part of the whole artwork evidencing the creativ process, overcrossing the different expressions.
Long-term themes are manifesting connnections between artworks from different periods. So we can find the specularity, the repitition, the circulation, the endlessness, the inversion of processes or situations, the ongoing of time. The artworks resulting from these processes are realized in interaction with the ambient and environment, becoming unique and not repeatable bodies.
Deep friendships led to collaborations with artists and creatives from other œuvres like visual artists, composers, poets.
Huebner works also with groups of persons - mostly important figures in her own life, the protagonists, including their experiences as fundamental components of the artwork.
Regina Hübner held several international solo shows, group shows, festivals. About her work publications and symposia.
Her artworks are present in public and private collections.

Regina Hübner nasce a Villach in Carinzia, Austria da padre tedesco e madre austriaca. Vive una felice infanzia in continuo contatto con la natura e dove avvengono i primi approcci al mondo dell'arte.
Nel 1980 si trasferisce per lo studio a Graz, dove dipinge i primi formati grandi.
Nel 1985 si diploma in Graphic-Design alla Höhere Technische Lehranstalt für Kunst und Design HTBLVA Graz-Ortweinschule a Graz, Austria.
Nel 1985 partecipa ad un workshop di scultura nelle cave di St. Margarethen, Austria, e realizza la sua prima scultura in pietra. Questa sarà un'esperienza-chiave che la convince definitivamente di seguire la sua passione per la scultura. Si trasferisce per un anno a Carrarra, Italia. In questo periodo dipinge quadri in formati molto grandi su carta.
Nel 1986 si stabilisce a Roma, dove continua a portare avanti il suo lavoro artistico.
Nel 1990 si laurea in Scultura presso la Accademia delle Belle Arti di Roma.
Nel suo percorso artistico elabora il significato concettuale e formalmente alleggerisce la materia con cui visualizza le sue idee, trovando la leggerezza fisica, il volume senza materia. Il suo lavoro artistico diventa più aereo.
Regina Hübner realizza dipinti e plastiche sospese e li inserisce in diaproiezioni e movimenti casuali. Dal 1990 utilizza con più frequenza la fotografia sperimentale e il film video per formare ambientazioni e utilizzandoli durante performance.
Espone in qualificate gallerie private e musei e partecipa a numerose rassegne internazionali, in Europa e negli Stati Uniti. Le sue opere sono presenti in collezioni pubbliche e private in Europa, Stati Uniti, Australia.
Nell’ambito del suo progetto Anonymus dedicated to Vally è stato pubblicato nel 2002 il libro Anonymus Regina Hübner di Simonetta Lux e Patrizia Mania con testi sul progetto e sull’artista di Simonetta Lux, Patrizia Mania, Domenico Scudero, Roberto Annecchini, Franz Niegelhell e Carlo Sini. A Roma e Milano sono stati organizzati simposî su temi dei suoi progetti come L’autore si separa dalla propria opera nel 2003 e Spazio e destino tra opera d’arte e suo autore nel 2004.
Nel 2003 ha fondato con Enrico Realacci 2rh+ architecture & visual art.
Ha creato opere insieme ad artisti di altre discipline, come ad esempio Erinnerungen per Games con Fabio Cifariello Ciardi, Tagebuch con Roberto Annecchini, topos/utopos con Enrico Realacci, Zeit/Person e world I with Mare, happen and unhappen with Terra con Luca Lombardi, Die Floete und das Bild with Roberto Fabbriciani, impression/expression con Marina Corona, poetessa.
I progetti di Regina Hübner sono frutto di riflessioni su esperienze soggettive e concetti universali, che pongono domande. Utilizzando strumenti come video, fotografia sperimentale, suono e silenzio, testo, disegno, performance, ma anche luce e ombra, movimento, oggetti, mutamenti dovuti a processi fisici o software appositamente programmati, l’artista realizza opere in relazione con l’ambiente, creando situazioni specifiche e irripetibili.
