Green lifestyle boom by Gina Folly

Jun 20, 2016

Gina Folly is Swiss artist based in Basel, Switzerland
Gina Folly’s work consists of drawings, photography, installation and sculpture. She is interested in the social phenomena of our growing wellness culture, her work adapts and transforms objects and symbols of this culture. Plants and animals as well as sounds and scents are often used within her artistic work. While us humans in a globalised world are constantly trying to be more productive,we on the other hand try to spend more time in nature or in order to save time and money at least to surround ourselves with it. The “green lifestyle boom” is critically highlighted in Folly’s work, where she negotiates the relationship between in-side and outside, private and public space, both from an architectural and a social point of view.
