Larissa Fassler’s work evolves from a social and practical approach to architecture. It is constructed out of a mass of topographic tracking, sketches, observations, and feelings that she experiences on site, and that are then synthesised into large graphic compositions, models, and sculptures.
Her work is organised in series based upon specific urban sites : Regent Street (London 2009), La Gare du Nord (Paris 2014), Alexanderplatz (Berlin 2006), Kotti (Berlin 2008-2014), Les Halles or La Place de la Concorde (Paris 2011). She explores the threshold between space, volume, and the ways in which places are perceived, experienced, and practised.
Her work has been presented in several shows : in Kunstraum Kreuzberg, Berlin (2013), at the Kunstverien Kristansand in Norway ( 2011), Kunsthalle Dusseldorf (2011), Today Art Museum Beijing (2008)… Her work is part of several collections: Le Fonds municipal d’art contemporain de la Ville de Paris (FMAC), Staatliches Museum Schwerin, Deutsche Bank Collection, FPM collection, Berlin, Viersen National Library of Quebec, Artists, book collection, Montreal.
