Influenced by the feminism of the 60s and 70s, Miriam Cahn’s artistic practice deals with the materiality of the body. Her works are haunting and multi-layered at the same time. They explore the various meanings associated with our physicality, of rejection, vulnerability, and shame. Cahn treats figurative subjects with an abstract sensibility, using simple objects and motifs to speak about complex socio-political issues. Although she lives and works in a remote alpine region in Switzerland, Cahn’s work is very much connected to current events.
