Paul Hutzli (Switzerland)

Paul Hutzli

is a Swiss artist born in 1992. He studied visual arts at ESAM Caen/Cherbourg and at HEAD in Geneva, where he graduated with honours.

He uses various mediums drawing, painting, installation and performance are. Fascinated by the carnivalesque, he carried out extensive research on this subject, writing his Masters thesis at HEAD-Geneva under the direction of Christophe Kihm. In his practice, he aims to take the context of the work into account, playing with its rules in order to transform it and to offer, for a brief moment, an ambiguous space open to the imagination.

He has had various solo and group shows in Switzerland, France and Germany. His most recent projects are Candy Island, a solo show at Halle Nord, where he exhibited a stained-glass space made out of sugar, as well as his participation to the Bourses déliées at the Fond Cantonal dArt Contemporain in Geneva.
