Selina Baumann

2022

Born 1988 in Wattwil, Switzerland.

Selina Baumann is an object artist, she works with plaster and ceramics. Her creative handling of materials expresses a basic theme of her work: every body is permeable. A precise demarcation between inside and outside, between the self and the world is difficult. Opening and immersion in oneself shape her sculptural body. Skeletal forms unfold organically and unite intimately with stunted torsos. Beyond Gravity, in other words.
