SUSI GELB

(B. 1985 BAD TÖLZ, GERMANY, LIVES AND WORKS BETWEEN BERLIN AND MUNICH)

-> USER-DEFINED LANDSCAPE 2020 (SOLO)

-> CV

In the studio, Susi‛s something of an alchemist – testing materials, processes, new technologies, interactions. Outside she is highly aware of the context. This is how a sculpture may glow in the dark, with its embedded phosphorescence. And this is also how a palm tree grows impossibly in the middle of Odeonsplatz in Munich. Susi Gelb draws inspiration from natural entities and phenomena as well as science and technology. Some of her sculptures seem to be living materials which change their properties on their own accord. Her video installations modify the perception of space, physics, time.
