Badischer Kunstverein is pleased to present the first comprehensive solo exhibition by Uta Pütz. The artist preferentially works in the mediums of sculpture and photography. In her artwork she frequently uses found items, which she then stages as sculpture in photographs or in the exhibition space. Pütz collects materials like pieces of wood, cardboard, or glass and regroups them into objects positioned in the exhibition space like random encounters, confronting the beholder with an independent narration through their constellations. For the exhibition in the atrium, she will create new works on site by integrating found materials from the Kunstverein's own workshops and storage areas.
Uta Pütz (b. 1969 in Aachen) lives and works in Cologne.
