Excerpt from Interview Elisabeth-Jesus Guennaibim-Defner: “The artist Elisabeth-Jesus Guennaibim-Defner creates objects that not only nestle on the body but positively support it, revive its energies and recharge it…..Thus a symbiosis with artistic calls for aesthetically sustainable solutions becomes possible, a goal she has made her highest priority and has gratifyingly attained.”
