Biography

Augustin Rebetez (1986) works in various media including painting, photography, video, sculpture, installations and theatre. The artist is developing a universe populated by characters, chimeras and peculiar machines which reflect his exuberant imagination. Drawing inspiration from outsider and folk art brut as well as tribal design, Rebetez constructs a multifacetted body of work that defies categorisation. 

Since 2009, he has exhibited his work all over the world including the Sydney Biennale, the Rencontres d’Arles, the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, the Kunstmuseum Bern, the Daegu Photo Biennale, the MBAL or the Tinguely Museum in Basel. He received different awards, including the Vevey International Photography Prize in 2014 and the Swiss Art Awards in 2019.

Recently, he took part to the Shenzhen Independent Animation Biennale 2018, and in 2019 he did his two first major solo show in São Paulo and Milano with curator Adelina von Fürstenberg. 

In his vibrant exploration of total art, he collaborates with many performers, acrobats, musicians and friends, as well institutions such as Théâtre de Vidy in Lausanne, where he created three different pieces, or Art for the World

In 2018, he released a serie of twelve stop-motion shorts with director and clown Martin Zimmermann, entitled The Adventures of Mr. Skeleton.

He has published several books and realised many clips and album covers for bands such as Louis Jucker, Emilie Zoé, The Young Gods or his own band Gängstgäng.

Often abroad, he is based in a small village in the swiss countryside, where he uses his house as a huge atelier and an open art residency.
