Karin Lehmann

Who are you?

My name is Karin Lehmann. I'm a Swiss artist and right now a traveller in Iceland.

What kind of music do you listen to when you work?

Usually I don't listen to music but I enjoyed the country-radio-station in the Westfjords. But driving is not working. Or maybe it is?

What inspires you?

Iceland, food and cooking, Bauhaus, plants, traveling, art museums, friends, geology, literature, engaged people whatever they do.

What themes do you pursue?

I often start experimenting with simple materials like plaster or glass or styrofoam. It is a process more in the making than in research. At the moment I'm very much into blueberries.

Name some of your favorite artists.

Roni Horn, Karla Black, Gabriel Orozco, Gutai, Lygia Pape, Fischli/Weiss, Phyllida Barlow
