Rinomina is happy to present “Science Friction / Sensory Collator”, the first solo show by Stéphanie Baechler in France. Through her work with textiles, embroidery and ceramics the artist investigates the sensual experience that has become increasingly rare through today technologies. The underlying question is how current technologies connect and disconnect us at the same time in a broad-spectrum.
