Sibylle Peretti's work explores the relationship between time, loss, emotion, memory, and solitude. Through her multimedia collages and sculptures, Peretti offers a narrative into which the people and animals in her work give way. Much of her work combines photography and drawing with surface interventions such as engraving, mirroring, and glass slumping. Peretti's quiet scenes balance themes of nostalgia and loss, while also urging the viewer to look inward.
“There are so many moments in life when you feel helpless, speechless, and don’t know where to begin. That’s the chance for finding another language and to make something visible that always existed but was covered inside. I am very thankful that I am able to explore my imagination and that I search for ways to find a non-verbal language to express life.” – Sibylle Peretti
