Linsi holds a BA in Fine Arts from HGK FHNW Basel and is current- ly studying Psychology and Art History at University of Zurich.

“There is an obvious absurdity to trying to make a cat love you. One that reminds me in passing of the works of the Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader, in particularly his repeated efforts to defy gravity in Falling I (where he films himself falling off a roof) and Falling II (riding a bicycle into a canal). What links Jan Ader and Linsi and makes their attempts intriguing is not the silliness of their activities but the seriousness with which they partake in them.” (Text Chloe Stead, 2017).
