Boris Rebetez was born in 1970 in Lajoux / Switzerland. After studying at the Basel School of Fine Art from 1991 to
1994, he moved to Brussels in 1995 where he lived until 2008. Following a residency at Swiss institute in Rome in
2009, he returned to Basel, where he currently lives and works.

Rebetez’s inter­est lies in the var­i­ous con­cepts of space, which becomes obvi­ous when ana­lyz­ing his eclec­tic work
con­tain­ing draw­ings, col­lages, sculp­tures, instal­la­tions, 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.
