Mireille Fulpius

Visual artist Mireille Fulpius was born in Geneva on February 2, 1951. As a young graduate of the Visual Arts School in Geneva, she spent her first ten years as an artist working with metal, changing her working methods and spatial reference points when she was given the chance to set up a studio in a disused industrial building. This was also when she rediscovered wood, which was to become her material of choice – a turning-point in her artistic practice. For the past two decades, Fulpius has been producing large outside structures, each unique, which she describes as reservoirs of energy, in constant dialogue with the energies contained within the natural rhythms of the environment.
