Air Taster
Independent Artist
Participates in 1 Session

Alex Grünenfelder is an artist and designer based in Alvaneu Switzerland and Vancouver Canada, on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories. His work employs printed matter, performance, sound, olfaction and informal pedagogy to explore the perception of space, landscape, and the air as speculative objects. His projects have been exhibited in Canada, USA, South Korea and Switzerland. Current projects focus on the sensory analysis of atmospheric phenomena and the history of Swiss alpine dairies and high-altitude sanatoria as cultural sites that elicit therapeutic effects by bringing the human body and psyche into particular relationships with a landscape.
