ABOUT

Boris Rebetez was born in 1970 in Lajoux / Switzerland. He currently lives and works in Basel.

Boris Rebetez is a multimedia artist who works with drawings, collages, sculptures, installations and photographs.
Rebetez’s inter­est lies in the var­i­ous con­cepts of space, which becomes obvi­ous when ana­lyz­ing his eclec­tic work
con­tain­ing draw­ings, col­lages, sculp­tures, instal­la­tions and pho­tog­ra­phy. Space there­fore is not only addressed
in terms of spa­tial sur­round­ing, but also as a the­o­ret­i­cal and his­tor­i­cal entity. Fur­ther, Boris Rebetez under­stands
space as to be expe­ri­enced sub­jec­tively and to be cre­ated mentally.

Boris Rebetez has exhibited in several institutions such as Museum für Gegenwartkunst Basel, Kunsthalle Basel,
Graphische Sammlung der ETH, Zürich, Swiss Institute in Rom and New York, Aargauer Kunsthaus, Musée Rath,
Geneva, Kunstmuseum Solothurn, Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerpen, Etablissement d’en face,
Brussels, Paços das Artes, Sao Paulo, Casino Luxembourg, O.K. Centrum für Gegenwartskunst, Linz, Osage Art
Foundation Hong Kong, a.o.
