Edith Flückiger uses video/film and text to create her works. Her art focuses on man’s fate: our physical presence in the world, the physiological laws and limitations we are subject to including the related psychological consequences, and the transience and finite nature of our lives. Her work explores the tangible moments in life, those moments that we experience with our senses and through which we are connected and rooted in the world around us.
