Bettina Pousttchi wraps castle
Bettina Pousttchi is a German-Iranian artist, living and working in Berlin. She works equally in the field of media, photography, video and sculpture, often involving architecture in urban and historical contexts. Her exhibition at the Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg is a site-specific photo installation called “The City”: an artwork covering the façade of the city’s castle. This work is a reference to the history of the 20th century planned city Wolfsburg.
Working on architecture about architecture allows for an artistic practice between architecture, sculpture, and photography. It is a different way to materialize a photographic file and to bring back the digital to the physical world.
