Christina Forrer

Born in 1978, Christina Forrer paints, weaves tapestries and produces works on paper. Through an outwardly gentle iconography and a lively palette, the Swiss artist represents the power relations that govern our society, while at the same time affirming a visual and technical heritage derived from craftsmanship. She also claims a feminist legacy from the women artists of the early twentieth-century avant-garde and their works of textile art. The anxiety that seizes us when we look at the scenes depicted in her tapestries contrasts with the time and the calm composure required by their weaving, establishing a particular tension.
