About this title


Challenging European cultural conventions, the work of Swiss-Bolivian artist Carmen Perrin is infused with fine undertones and references to her Latin American roots. In her preference for industrial mass-produced materials she transposes electric wire, cables and building materials into a subtle, ambiguous imagery and sculptures which activate the surrounding space. This publication presents 15 of her most important art-in-architecture interventions: in the Zurich headquarters of the Swiss National Bank, the Dock Midfield Terminal of Zurich- Kloten Airport, Lucerne's Gynaecological Hospital and further projects in France, Brazil, USA (New York) and Switzerland.

About the Author:

Carmen Perrin, born in Bolivia in 1953, emigrated to Switzerland in 1960. She now lives in France and teaches at Geneva's Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts.
