Bastien Gachet

Residency Mrz – Aug 2018
Pro Helvetia

Bastien Gachet practice is grounded in notions of duration and physical transformation. Aiming for a direct, intimate relation with the work, he works with daily objects, exploring their existence through two conflictual contexts: exhibition setting and everyday environments. Looking to give the viewer a position of witness rather than one of interpreter, his work focuses on mechanisms of fore and back-groundings of perceptual awareness.
