Tashi Brauen Swiss/Tibetan, b. 1980

Tashi Brauen's interest lies in observing the characteristics of objects in relation to people and everyday materials. He combines amorphous structures with geometrical forms: "I am interested in working with common materials and transforming them into a new form". It's an attempt to give a new view on different contemporary materials and shapes which are surrounding us."


At the heart of Brauen's practice is a study about materials and their surfaces reacting with different interventions: "When I use a new material it's always an experiment. I start with bending and folding the new material, observing its characteristics. At the end my intention is to keep the interventions to a minimum."
