Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency
Carmen Perrin is a Bolivian-born Swiss artist living and working in Geneva. Since the 1980s, Carmen Perrin has established herself as a visual artist with a rich sculptural practice, creating work that articulates relationships between materials and explores their relationships with the space of perception and light as well as the architectural qualities and social realities of public space. In the 1990s, she began to work in a close relationship with architectural and landscape contexts and increasingly through projects related to public space. Carmen leads in the studio, a research network which closely articulates the practices of sculpture and drawing.
In 2014, Carmen was appointed member of the Patronage Committee of the Distinction Romande d'Architecture 2014 (with Daniel Berset, Federal Councilor, Philippe Biéler, Central President of Swiss Heritage and Werner Jeker, graphic designer).
