Radical Soft presents soft sculptures by Talaya Schmid (*1983, Zurich). The artist uses her body as an instrument, in both her performances and also when producing her sculptural works: tufted vulvas, abstracted, playful, and oversized. Critical and humorous at the same time. An invitation to explore the female sex.

Thank you
