Reto Pulfer presents a newly commissioned site-specific work titled hyperbolisch ratlos ortlos inhaltslos (2015–21) at The Lewis’s Building as part of the indoor chapter of this year’s Liverpool Biennial. Consisting of immersive textile installations, the work focuses on the relationship between the body and nature. Inspired by his memories of growing up near Switzerland’s largest landscape garden, and more recently his relocation to the Uckermark region of Germany, the work begins with the process of extracting natural pigments from plants and applying the dye onto hand-sewn fabrics, recycled bedsheets, paper and wood to form environmental sculptures.
