Larissa Fassler

For the past 18 years, Larissa Fassler has been creating works of art that document and interrogate the geo-spatial politics of city life. Through cartographic paintings, drawings, and architectural sculptures, she creates visualizations of the observable and intangible characteristics of a city and documents the complicated socioeconomic and cultural issues affecting urban space today. Drawing on the tradition of psychogeography, she maps urban landscapes using her own body. Employing her own subjective systems to survey public spaces by walking their length and breadth, she records her corporeal experiences and collects detailed observations onsite as well undertaking archival and online research.

Larissa Fassler has lived and worked in Berlin since 1999. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including solo exhibitions at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, New Hampshire; the Bröhan-Museum in Berlin; the Esker Foundation in Calgary; and The Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris. Recent group exhibitions include Centre de Création Contemporaine Olivier Debré (CCC OD) Tour, The National Gallery of Canada, and Palais Populaire in Berlin. Her work has been nominated for the Metropolitan Arts Centre International Contemporary Art Prize in Belfast in 2018 and the Berlin Art Prize in 2019. She is represented by Galerie Poggi in Paris.
