Yasmin Bawa is a Berlin-based artist creating sculptures, furniture, and interior spaces. Drawing on careful observation of the topology of space, she works sculpturally to explore the use of natural materials and traditional hand-building techniques. Her work is created through a slow and layered process that allows space for meditation and reflection. Her sculptural installations create a world that we can enter, where object and user are seen as equal entities. Her forms articulate the voids and contours that exist between the body and its environment.
Her current work is an exploration into hemp lime, a term for the basic mixture of hemp shiv, clay, and lime binder. Together they tell a story of strength, renewability, and versatility, fusing traditions of historical technologies with contemporary ideas for sustainability.
