TIMEFLOWERS

We know that everything has its "time" – even mundane objects of daily use. Yesterday taken for granted, many things today are already remnants of their own heyday. The faster technology, new media and societies develop, the sooner an everyday object becomes a relic without desirability or purpose. Such remnants, and the history stored in them, inspire me to create the "Timeflower" objects. Whether crocheted doilies, magnetic tape from video cassettes or old hand mirrors - they are contemporary witnesses that deserve a new perspective.

SIMI LARISCH

Freelance artist and graphic designer with own studio in Düsseldorf since 2005.


After training as a state-certified designer for media & communication, I worked for many years in advertising as a graphic designer, creative supervisor and art director in Wuppertal, Munich and Cologne.
Since I am particularly interested in the interfaces between graphics, design and art, I studied at the new art school in Zurich, as well as art history and media studies at the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf (2019 doctorate).
The theoretical knowledge of art history, the practical experience from graphics, advertising and design - as well as all the resulting "overlaps" - have a significant influence on my artistic work.
