Boris Rebetez is a multimedia artist who works with drawings, collages, sculptures, installations and photographs. He currently lives and works in Basel where he studied at the Schule für Gestaltung from 1990 – 1994. Rebetez's inter­est lies in the var­i­ous con­cepts of space, which becomes obvi­ous when ana­lyz­ing his eclec­tic work con­tain­ing draw­ings, col­lages, sculp­tures, instal­la­tions and 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.
