Hailing from the world of photography, Geneva-based artist Matheline Marmy works with manipulable and reactive materials: metals, water, salts, acids, textiles, sunlight and bacteria - from which she creates objects and installations in combination with materials such as glass or plastic. She is also the co-editor of the ‘Exhibitions on Paper’ series of artist publications. Matheline Marmy was invited by Orlando Werffeli, the manager of the Zurich-based off space Lighthaus, to renew her contacts on the Zurich art scene across the Swiss-French/Swiss-German cultural divide as well as taking advantage of new networking opportunities.
In the studio Matheline Marmy tries out processing techniques. She solders brass mesh and copper to create experimental test pieces which hang on the concrete wall and become touching artworks in their archaic and expressive abstract materiality.
