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 where he remained until 2008. After a residency at the 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,
Casino Luxembourg, O.K. Centrum für Gegenwartskunst, Linz, Osage Art Foundation Hong Kong, a.o.
