On Words is a collection of interviews with leading women artists linked to the contemporary art scene. In conversation with Juilie Enckell, Federica Martini, and Sarah Burkhalter, the artists are invited to trace the origin of their respective practices, discuss the challenges they have encountered, and share how they perceive the world. The sum of the voices brought together in the series On Words, co-edited by the Swiss Institute of Art Research (SIK-ISEA) and Scheideggerand Spiess, creates a polyphonic history of art-told by those playing an active part in its shaping.
Isabelle Cornaro’s works demonstrate how perception is conditioned by culture. Objects, their origins, our emotional connection with them — these are the themes of theatrical installations and short films. In conversation with Julie Enckell, Isabelle Cornaro discusses the sources and evolution of her art.
