Within the Artist-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host Franziska Furter.
Furter was born in Zurich, Swiss, in 1972. She lives and works in Basel und Berlin and she is staying in Studio Verde during March 2020.
The artist graduated from the Kunstgewerbeschule in Zurich (1992-94) and from the Hochschule für Bildende Kunst HKG in Basel (1994-97). Her works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions (Kunstverein Arnsberg, Palais de Tokyo – Module in Paris, Towner Gallery in Eastbourne, Kunsthaus Baselland).
Franziska Furter is an artist who works in installation, sculpture, and two-dimensional media such as paper. She has developed a practice which challenges preconceptions of aesthetic beauty and decoration. Always led by a self-imposed set of rules, her artworks result from a rigorous process and from the decision to end said process, made at the very moment when sophistication meets illusion, and when methodology vanishes in what seems to be a fortunate coincidence.
