With her unique artistic installations, Madame Tricot – real name Dominique Kaehler Schweizer – displaces the viewer into an illusory world of knitted delicacies.

Her smokehouses, refrigerators, counters of sausage and cheese, and platters of vegetables and desserts are full of wit and irony. The knitted human heads and anthropomorphic specimens, on the other hand, confront the viewer with the breaking of taboos and surreal allusions. The installation-like staging represents a balancing act of fine art and virtuosic craftsmanship and draws on the Eat-Art movement of the 1960s.

The work of the Swiss artist thus repeatedly awakens associations to the work of Daniel Spoerri, Dieter Roth and Fischli/Weiss.
