Lausen | Zurich & Cologne

Lausen | Zurich & Cologne

Lausen lives and works in Zurich.

“My real studio is my head” is the guiding principle of her artistic exploration. So she uses her personal experiences and observations and makes them the motive of her work. These building blocks put them in a relationship with each other to visualize spatial phenomena. The expression of their ideas as a dialogue between space and perception.
Thinking with the eyes and tracing their inner world, she builds the experienced in object, image and text.
