Reto Pulfer (b. 1981, Bern, Switzerland) lives and works in the Uckermark region of Germany. Pulfer is a self-taught artist who creates immersive installations made from fabric that incorporate painting, sculpture, fictional writing and soundscapes. Pulfer works closely with natural processes and making sculptures with living plants. Pulfer’s practice is defined by the German word “Zustand”, which describes the meditative state that Pulfer enters during his performances.
