Swiss sculptor Sibylle Pasche transforms large segments of Italian marble into boulder-like sculptures which are covered in a porous web. These holes provide a peek inside the works’ complex interiors while also evoking the structure of a capillary system or the dense composition of a sea sponge. These openings visually conflict with the density and weight of her chosen material, which can often weigh up to several tons.
Pasche was born in Switzerland and studied art at the Liceo Artistico in Zurich. She currently keeps two European spaces for her work, splitting time between her studios in Switzerland and Carrara, Italy. You can see more of her large, sculptural forms on her Facebook and website.
