LUZIA VOGT (1971, Basel, Switzerland)
Life is a cycle of giving and taking, development and change. The found object, a discard from the utilitarian world lays idle awaiting destruction, renewal or metamorphosis. A leftover is a reminder of a person’s presence, a witness of passed time. Found objects attract my perception. They trigger my curiosity and play with my imagination. Leftovers disturb routines, habits and orders.
The transformation of these found objects as well as everyday patterns are starting points for my work. The alternating process of experimentation and reflection leads me to the final piece. I respond to used everyday objects and fragments with intuition. I let them disturb my daily life routines, habits and rituals. Common ways of looking at things and values in society are being questioned. Bio
