By Garage Rotterdam

Her work, made with meticulous precision and a great deal of patience, coaxes visitors to take a closer look, and is characterised by a constant battle between attraction and repulsion. This is a duality that emanates from her vision of the world and how people behave according to the so-called codes of civilisation while still being driven by their instinctive fears and desires. Silvia B.’s work is a call to challenge the constraints imposed on us from the outside, and to open the door to our deepest desires and ambitions, thus revealing our secret and most imaginative selves.
