Yves Scherer

Yves Scherer is a digital native. Using the latest technical capabilities to contextualize the speculative substantiality of the human body, his wall objects, sculptures and environmental installations negotiate contents from popular culture in an epistemologically deliberated vocabulary of modern and contemporary art. His work linking online and offline, virtual and real is seen to carry a formal precision and sensuous quality.
