Larissa Fassler was born in 1975 in Vancouver (CA). She lives and works in Berlin.
Although Larissa Fassler’s work has an evident relationship with architecture, it is essentially built on a set of readings and impressions experienced by the artist, which she synthesizes into large graphic compositions, models or sculptures.
Her work is organized in series, built around specific urban sites: Columbus Circle (NYC 2017-2020), Regent Street (London 2009), La Gare du Nord (Paris 2014-2020), Alexanderplatz (Berlin 2006), Kotti (Berlin 2008-2014), Les Halles or La Place de la Concorde (Paris 2011-2020). She explores the threshold between space and volumes, the way they are invested and exploited.
Galerie Poggi has held three solo exhibitions of her work in 2011, 2016 and 2020. Her work has been shown abroad in numerous exhibitions at the Currier Museum in Manchester (2020), La Galerie, Centre d’Art Contemporain de Noisy-Le-Sec (2020), the Canadian Cultural Centre (2016), the Esker Foundation Contemporary Art Gallery in Calgary (2016), EPICENTRE (2015) and SEPTEMBER (2014) in Berlin (2015), Kunstraum Kreuzberg in Berlin (2013), Kunstverien Kristansand in Norway (2011), Kunsthalle in Dusseldorf (2011), Today Art Museum in Beijing (2008). ..
