Surya Tüchler

Usually Surya Tüchler develops her live performances site-specifically to the given context and focus to formal links to the environment. Materials are her starting point - covering and masking are her artistic tool. By connecting her body with natural materials she explores animalistic sides of her personality and physicality. Her way of climbing, moving and gazing communicates the quality of an unknown creature. Images emerge that oscillate between beauty and disgust.
