Lives and works in Freiburg

In her artworks, Claudia Borowsky explores materials. She reasearches its characteristic, possibilities and limits. Her material influences the process of creation, the content and the expression of her artworks and becomes in this way the co-author. The Freiburg artist works with concrete and nylon. Based on experiments with dough, she fills heavy concrete mass into nylon tights, forms it, exposes it to gravity or strains the tights into expansive installations. The concrete sculptures and installations seem like early forms of the organic. They refer to the origin of the creation of form, to the moment when a form begins to emerge. In addition to installations and abstract sculptures, she creates figurative works which shows the human being in its originality and vulnerability.
