“Nature is Simon Ledergerber’s field of inspiration: natural phenomena, chemical reactions and physical properties are his means, natural elements such as stone, salt and wood, are his raw materials. Like a scientist he experiments and tries to extend or intensify the conditions and processes that he has observed. His studio is a laboratory. His works are observations. Simon Ledergerber has a clear vision of what he is aiming for and likes to use unconventional methods to achieve it.” Kunsthalle Mulhouse
