Liliane Puthod makes sculptures and large-scale interventions or what might be deemed to be a subversive appropriation of objects, images, and texts by using both industrial materials and handmade processes as a way to confront archaeological and commodified times. She manipulates some of societies existing modes of production and dissemination to investigate the elusive concept of time inherent to everyday life’s consumption and to subtly destabilise what she considers the fabrication of desire and its perceived value within our globalised world.
Her research around the artists productive circuit in post-industrial contexts further investigates the relationship between labour, use-value, and function to question how does the artist’s studio echo or differ from commonly held productive workspaces.
Liliane Puthod lives and works in Dublin. She graduated with a Master in Fine Arts at HEAD Geneva in 2013. Selected exhibitions include Woman in the Machine, VISUAL, 2021; Dissolving Histories: An Unreliable Presence, Golden Thread Gallery, 2020; Display, Link and Cure, The Complex, 2019; How Long After Best Before, Pallas Projects/Studios, 2019; Everything Must Go, PS2, 2019. Awards include Project Studio, Temple Bar Gallery+Studios; Arts Council of Ireland Visual Arts Bursary and the Summer Studio Residency, TUD, Dublin.
