Milva Stutz artistic practice includes animated videos, drawings, and sculptures and she is interested in the relationship between body, intimacy and technology. In the interplay of digital and analog, Stutz deals with questions around body and materiality: What is perceived as lifeless, untouchable, non-human, and how does that change the way we behave physically and emotionally? She lives and works in Zurich.
