• Valeria Caflisch

    is a visual artist, born in Catania, Italy, who has been working in the United States these last few years. She recently moved to Switzerland, where she works as teaching artist in museums, while exhibiting her social critical art. Her goal is to work on the visual sensitivity of a public and to fill the gap between artwork and public, by the means of attraction/repulsion and critical engagement.

  • Paradox and deconstruction

    Je travaille sur l’incertitude du sens. Avec un intérêt constant, comme dirait Derrida, aux « cadres » ou au « marges » des choses. Le paradoxe et la déconstruction sont pour moi mouvement même de l’attention à l’autrui.
