Silvia Seitz lives in Kilchberg in the canton of Zurich and works in her studio in the Grisons mountains. She is a trained actress, and that may be the first thing that is important to her visual work. As a result of her profession, she has an eye for the small gesture, for the barely perceptible emotion and for the potentially laboriously hidden vulnerability - all this she had to be able to express as an actress.
A second, no less important: Seitz lived for 14 years in South Africa, where she founded (with) a theater project. Again, the view of the everyday world detail played a major role, now expanded to the experience of another and sometimes expressing another culture. She gained knowledge of plastic design in numerous courses, including: a. at the M-ART in Zurich. All this flows together in her sculptural works.
