Breaking up familiar forms is an exciting thing and opens up endless possibilities. Marlys Bratschi tries to perceive everyday objects differently, she tries to think away their actual function. As a result, the original form of the object as a whole recedes into the background and individual parts become more visible. If these found parts are brought into connection with another body, a lot of space for imagination is created.
Marlys Bratschi's works are not preceded by any socio-critical motivation, even if hints can be read. For example, the connection of tool handles from the working class with the fine, gold-decorated porcelain of high society. Or the fact that their basic material consists almost exclusively of discarded objects. All this is coincidence, if it exists.
