Franziska Baumgartner. Bis sich Blasen bilden
Franziska Baumgartner’s (*1987) artistic practice has its origin in the experimental use of volatile and changeable materials found in mechanical and everyday devices. She is interested in physical qualities like magnetism, conductivity, and binding capacity, as well as the transformation of alimentary products through cultural practices like fermentation, molecular cooking, and the production of bioplastic.
In the resulting installations and sound and video works, she combines analogue and digital image media for the production of image and sound – at times based on random processes, at others tightly controlled. Kunsthaus Langenthal presents her first institutional solo exhibition, for which Baumgartner developed new site-specific works.Franziska Baumgartner, Studien 2021/22, Installationsansicht Kunsthaus Langenthal Foto: CE, Courtesy of the artist
