Works by Iris Hutegger

Iris Hutegger was born in 1964 in Schladming, Austria. She moved to Switzerland in 1990 and currently lives and works in Basel. In 1994, she began taking classes in sculpture and drawing at the School of Art and Design in Zurich and Lucerne (HGK) and graduated from The Basel School of Art and Design in 2005. Since 2004, she regularly exhibits her work. By mixing techniques such as sculpture or photography, Iris Hutegger creates installations that question the landscape, the space, the natural and the artificial. She puts pieces of landscapes in suitcases, draws chairs with cotton tread, creates flower meadows in exhibition spaces and develops a figurative and conceptual work of great poetry. In her photographic work, Iris Hutegger takes mountains as subject. She prints in black and white from color negatives and from those almost abstract documentary photographs, embroiders her own colours with a sewing machine on the landscape, bringing an emotional third dimension to the pictures
