Hilde Retzlaff

B. 1990, Lund, Sweden.

Hilde Retzlaff works in an invigorating and intuitive manner when collecting materials, where her method or approach is a crucial part of the working process. By deconstructing existing materials, such as packaging, carpets, posters and sacks, she reveals a new way of understanding the properties and qualities of the actual materials themselves. Through the creation of collage and sculpture, Retzlaff very consciously devotes attention to and reshapes a material that would otherwise end up in a rubbish heap. Hilde Retzlaff is currently enrolled in the MFA program att the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm.
