Lutz Bacher

Snow retrospective

+ Kunsthalle Zurich . Contemporary Art Daily

Lutz Bacher’s oeuvre evades all attempts at categorization or typological definition and instead provides extensive scope for wide-ranging interpretations. With her photographic works, sculptural ensembles, video works and installations, she challenges supposedly familiar images that have become established in the collective understanding. Through innovations, distortions, fragmentations, alienations and abstractions, she enables images and objects to interact in a new way and hence enables us to experience the collapse and contradiction of our societal conventions and the medial fictions associated with them. Themes like identity, its formation and interchangeability – be it in relation to individuals themselves or the celebrities feted by popular culture –, communities and their loose networks, the human body, sexuality and materiality are the core of her work.
