Reto Pulfer (b. 1981, Bern, Switzerland) lives and works in the Uckermark region of Germany. Pulfer is a self-taught artist who creates immersive installations made from fabric that incorporate painting, sculpture, his fictional writing and soundscapes played on the electric guitar. Following his retreat to the countryside, Pulfer has been working closely with natural processes and making sculptures with living plants. Pulfer’s practice is defined by the German word “Zustand”, which describes the state that Pulfer enters during his performances. Recent exhibitions include Musée d'Art Moderne de la Villede Paris, France (2019); Castello di Rivoli, Italy (2018); X Bienal de Nicaragua, Nicaragua (2016); and Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Germany (2015).
