Today we’d like to introduce you to Silvie Deutsch.
Silvie, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
My mom pushed and pushed. Here I came. Since then I’ve been walking around, eating things.
I make artworks that are installation environments made to offer people an experience of warmth, safety, joy, awe and play. I love to work collaboratively and with teams of people and I often create the conditions for this in my projects. More recently I have been making environments that serve as room-scale sound instruments, and I work with musicians, composers and lighting designers. I love creating a sculptural environment and then inviting experts to come in and see what they can do with them.
The most recent project I did was at the gallery at Glendale Community College and included wall-to-wall strings that could be played and large aluminum bowls that musicians and viewers could bang like gongs, or even sit in and drum. It was a warm, inviting and joyous space.
Has it been a smooth road?
Sometimes I need help opening jars of pickles and have questions about physics. I have anxiety at night about my roommate. These are the struggles of a white privileged person with no struggles.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Silvie Deutsch – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I do not have a business/company. I do, however, make art, but no one buys it.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I like the steam room at the YMCA in Hollywood. I dislike how noisy people are in the morning.
