Biography

Carola Bürgi creates ethereal site-specific installations of translucent sculptures made from materials like cellophane wrap and plastic sheets. Her practice is a deconstruction of sculpture, exploring tensions between translucence and materiality, vision and illusion, permanence and ephemerality. Bürgi’s whimsical forms—an oscillating tangle of bubble wrap or a forest of luminous cylinders—shift the distribution of light around the gallery space, making her works as much about spatial intervention as sculptural installation.
