For Silvia Bauer, the creation of objects and installations starts with material.

This versatile Austrian artist (1944), who graduated with a master degree in sculpture in
Brussels in 2005, breathes poetry and new life into items and materials left behind by our
consumerist society. Cardboard and tyre rubber – these everyday materials that come directly
from our consumer world – acquire sculptural value in her hands and are transformed into
new carriers of meaning. At her touch, the refined surface of corrugated cardboard becomes
astonishingly sensual, soft as velvet.

Algorithm 6 Tourbillon - Industrial waste / ABS plastic- 65x35x35cm, (2020)

She has been working for years on the transformation of cardboard, combining it with
fragments of used tyres in the context of different themes: fusion, dialogue, conflict,
multiplication. Various other materials from our consumer society have also inspired the artist
in her creation of objects and installations: the stunning series ‘Algorithms’, born of plastic
waste from mass production; broken shards of porcelain refined in China; from the gloves of
workers, a totem in Luxembourg built to honour them; surplus invitation cards presented in
the form of a sculpture; crushed fragments of tyres turned into a poetic spiral. The intuition
of Silvia Bauer knows no bounds. She is constantly taking new paths, but always in harmony
with her chosen basic material.

It is important for Silvia that her pieces arouse emotions and offer the viewer new sensory
experiences. She develops her own visual language in her extraordinary sculptures and
installations, managing to open up new perceptual possibilities and to wrest from this banal
matter amazing power and sensuality.
