GinaA Zustand novel

Reto Pulfer - Gina
In Reto Pulfer's novel, the artist draws a rich picture of a community of hybrid living beings. Characters and scenes from the novel also appear in the works and exhibitions of the artist. A multi-layered cosmos of links emerges and takes the reader into a parallel universe full of references to our current relationship with nature.

Self-taught artist Reto Pulfer (born 1981, Bern, lives and works in Berlin) uses painting, drawing, writing, music, found objects and everyday materials such as textiles, food or spices to create intuitive, and yet complex, synaesthetic environments, “total artworks” that need to be experienced. Often immersive, always site-specific, they embody various mental and conceptual states or Zustände, as the artist calls them.
