June Fischer was born in Switzerland, graduated from the Zurich University of the Arts, and also works and settles in Zurich. Her artistic practice is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, including video, sculpture, installation, and art criticism. When viewing her works, you will find that she is good at breaking the boundaries of vision, so that the viewing objects can find something that is not planned. A new aesthetic while presenting a more sensory visual experience.

In recent years, the artist has developed a keen interest in improving her technique in ceramic craftsmanship, while experimenting with different forms of presentation and the interplay between materials. Fischer’s expressive style is highly reflected in her work, evoking the state of separation.
Arch Gallery is currently showing June Fischer’s first exhibition in China. A total of 46 groups of artistic works including sculptures, installations, and videos are on display, covering two series of creations that the artist has researched in recent years. The exhibition opened on July 22, 2023, and will be on display until October 9.
“How can you preserve a video/performance? What forms of presentation are there to show a video? How can you present a video in an unconventional way? How can you integrate a video into a work? Where is the border between sculpture, painting and video art?”these are all questions that I have been asking myself and motivate me to experiment in order transcend such borders.
My artistic practice revolves around themes and questions concerning the absurdity the strange, the humorous, the conscious/ subconscious, nonsense, sensory perception and the everyday.In terms of content and form, my practice seeks the hybrid and is dependent on a constant development and transformation of artistic methods.
An ongoing text titled Stuzzicadenti, which constantly evolves as Ecriture automatique, currently serves as the basis for many of my works. An abstract piece, without a consistency or fixed narrative, which, with its audio-book character; wants to cast a spell of a non-existent story over the viewer. I translate individual words or sentences from the text into a specific medium in order to make it tangible and give it another form of existence. Stuzzicadenti is a cryptic script with a narrative strand that can go in all directions.The result is an examination of different media and their possibilities to visualize a manifold nature of organic bodies.
work can be brought together individually or in combination with other works created from this text. Thus, in each exhibition new and/or old works are reunited and recombined. Each work has a fixed name, but each new combination of works is given a new title.
My work should take the viewer into another world and allows a Lot of room for interpretation. In an exhibition space the sculptures are deliberately placed in rather non-obvious positions and spread across the room. A hidden and playful invitation to embark on a journey full of possible surprises and new perspectives.

June Fischer was born in August 1995 in Zurich, Switzerland. This is also where she currently lives and works as an independent artist.
While in recent years Fischer has developed a strong interest in refining her technical skills in ceramic craftsmanship, her artistic practice is highly multidisciplinary and encompasses media such as photography, sculpture, installation as well as writing and audiovisual work. As such, she seeks to transcend and challenge the boundaries between fixed categories whilst experimenting with the interplay between different forms of presentation and materials.Fischer’s versatile approach of expression is highly reflected in her works and evokes the state of dissociation. We all desperately yearn to hold on to something, don’t we? Solid lines between distinct media and context are deliberately blurred by a playful overlay.
