Vanessa Billy (b. Geneva) is based in Zürich, CH. Her work employs a wide range of substances including bronze, silicone, bio-resin, water, sump oil, metals, glass and plastics. Industrial products such as electrical cables, car engines, light bulbs get co-opted to manifest wider concerns around human consumption. Within her practice she draws parallels between physical and mental constructs and poses questions around the impact of human activity and its effects on life on earth.
