Claudia Bucher


Swiss artist Claudia Bucher, born in 1971, lives with her American partner and their two children in Lucerne, Switzerland. She studied sculpture at the City & Guilds of London Art School and Fine Arts at the Lucerne School of Art and Design. Since 2001 she has been working as a freelance artist in the mediums of Performance Art, Installation, Drawing and Printmaking.

I perform in order to engage with my thoughts - and my questions, too. I think in images. I focus on the space surrounding me, myself as sculpture within that space, and on how an action can change the relationship between my body and my environment. As I interact intensively with a material in the here and now, a transformation occurs. I‘m interested in the moments of transition - when beauty changes into ugliness, when clean becomes dirty, when gentle turns aggressive - and the opposing associations they evoke.
