Reto Pulfer

Self-taught artist Reto Pulfer is interested in the impermanence of things, the interconnection and transition between different states of being. Materials that reoccur in his works are: bed sheets, recycled clothes, ceramics, sand, twigs, spices, moss, food and tea. The materials either carry an inherent potential of transformation within them, clay only takes on a fixed form after being burnt in the oven, - or are transformed by the artist in the act of making. Reto’s textile pieces are made from various recycled fabrics that have been ink died, cut apart and stitched together in new formations.


Pulfer’s recent solo exhibitions include Fórum Eugénio de Almeida, Évora, Portugal, Centre international d’art et du paysage, Île de Vassivière, France, Spike Island, Bristol, Musée régional d’art contemporain Languedoc-Roussillon, Sérignan, France and Centre d’art contemporain Genève, Switzerland. He is nominated to the 2016 Swiss Art Awards.
