Making a work is about finding my appropriate distance to the world.
Sometimes I am a painter, watching the world from afar, mesmerised by its spectacle. At other times, I am a sculptor touching the world from within, teeming with life and folds.
Each time, I am a relief maker. Painting and sculpting are but two ways of exploring the boundaries of the rich space of relief.
Sophie Bouvier Ausländer (*1970) works in Lausanne and London.
