Golsa

Yves Scherer deals with questions regarding gender, celebrity and mediate realities. Mainly working with media as sculptures, photography, collages, painting and lager installations. With this he creates immersive environment that combining his own personal narratives with fan fiction to offer the viewer often a romantic lense or perspective on the self, relationships and the everyday life. Interested in surfaces and screens, Scherer often uses tatami mats or fake grass cut outs as part of his work - a reference to the artist´s own living habits and typical of this form of contemporary Arte Povera. His work explores issues concerning what is private and what is public.

Scherer’s work has been exhibited at international institutions and galleries such as Kunsthalle Basel, ICA London, Swiss Institute in NY and Kunstverein Wiesen. He is the recipient of a Förderpreis Bildende Kunst des Kanton Solothurn 2012, Swiss Art Award in 2015 and was listed on Forbes 30 under 30 “art and design” in the class of 2016.
