"Inner Journeys" april - june 2013

Born in 1953 in Bolivia. Lives and works in Geneva.

In the 1980’s, Carmen Perrin has imposed herself as a plastic artist creating sculptures. Since the 1990’s, she has developed a close interest in the architecture context and landscape. In her creations she prefers to deal with industrial mass-produced elements like electric wires, cables and building materials. By repeatedly using those materials, she has developed an in-depth knowledge about them. Through her work Perrin visually shows areas of uncertainty – what things could be or what is expected – concentrating as much on the invisible (space) as on the existing structure or form of the finished work. Her creations are permeated with fine undertones and references to her Latin American roots, mixing the cultural restraints of Europe with the political constraints of her homeland.
