Item description for Carmen Perrin - Contexts: Public Situations by Carmen Perrin...
Challenging European cultural conventions, the work of Swiss-Bolivian artist Carmen Perrin is infused with fine undertones and references to her Latin American roots. In her preference for industrial mass-produced materials she transposes electric wire, cables and building materials into a subtle, ambiguous imagery and sculptures which activate the surrounding space. This publication presents 15 of her most important art-in-architecture interventions: in the Zurich headquarters of the Swiss National Bank, the Dock Midfield Terminal of Zurich- Kloten Airport, Lucerne's Gynaecological Hospital and further projects in France, Brazil, USA (New York) and Switzerland. Carmen Perrin, born in Bolivia in 1953, emigrated to Switzerland in 1960. She now lives in France and teaches at Geneva's Ecole Suprieure des Beaux-Arts.
