Nadia Hauri (born 1989 in Aarau, Switzerland) lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland. Her practice focuses on sculpture. The human body, the poetry of materials and trauma form the basis of Hauri’s practice. Her artworks are distinguishable by the use of different materials like steel, twine and crystals, copper and concrete, latex, bronze. The sculptures aspire to act as socio-psychological catalysts. Nadia Hauri mainly deals with four topics that unfold throughout her larger artistic practice: desire, equilibrium, healing and protection. She aims for her sculptures to generate a resonating space in which the viewer is exposed to these topics through the materials and their vibrations.
