Nino BAUMGARTNER, Switzerland

Born in 1979, lives and works in Zürich.

In his works Nino Baumgartner explores in the form of so-called "Maneuver" the execution of site-specific actions. As a starting point a good preparation for the respective context is necessary, as well as the physical training and the compilation of specific work materials.

Baumgartner's elaborated personal art form includes tactical space strategies and sculptural techniques that he investigates in each Maneuver individually. These actions are captured in the very sense of multimedia.

The interventions are recorded and reflected on video and sculptural works are developed during the process. Space applications and material samples outlast the ephemeral actions and taking an independent position in the artist's oeuvre.

Presented with the generous support of Pro Helvetia.
