Franziska Furter

Aargauer Kuratorium Residency

Franziska Furter’s practice spans two and three-dimensional making. In a process of copying, scanning and enlarging, two-dimensional drawings are developed from a wide range of references and found imagery. Shifting between organic/mineral structures and cosmic representation, three-dimensional drawings play with the duality of aggressive appearance and extreme fragility. Franziska’s works are often visualizations of the ‘invisible’, depicting movement, sound, imagined imagery and hallucinations. Through a reductive approach to material and colour, the works often juxtapose material density with visual subtlety and ephemerality.

Franziska has had solo exhibitions at Lichthaus, Kunstverein Arnsberg (2013), Les Halles, Porrentruy (2012), Towner, Eastbourne (2011) and has participated in numerous major group exhibitions, including Traît Papier, Palazzo, Liestal (2013), Parasite, Ozean, Berlin (2013), Reflections from Nature, Songeun artspace, Seoul (2012), Voici un dessin suisse, 1990-2010, Kunsthaus Aarau (2011), Drawn in, Travelling Gallery, Touring Bus, Scotland (2011).
