Fabian Bürgy was born in 1980 in Switzerland where he still lives and works as a Sculptor and Independent Digital Creative. His diverse and playful artistic practice, which includes sculpture, installation and digital imaging, explores the aesthetic of things through random encounters of materials, misplaced situations and spatial relationships.
 
He began his career as a sculptor and later moved into graphic design and new media, with the aim to combine the techniques of both worlds. Thus the projects often mix traditional craft with new technology, in combination with the conceptual rigor and sense of playfulness from the communication and design industry. 
 
Bürgy creates conceptual situations and small interventions which are inspired by a wide range of mundane objects and appearances, from chairs and suicide belts to skid row textures, nails and even dog tails, all subjected to what could be described as Bürgy’s characteristically slightly violent and disturbing process of transformation, misplacement and dysfunction of things. He takes specific thoughts and develops conflicts with precise and absolutely minimalistic means - an oeuvre, which constantly explores the point where known things become something else, where metamorphosis is reached. The projects are often conceived to be viewed and experienced in explicitly large-scale installations or in a particular Spatial context like Walking on mines and Skid row or implicitly, in works such as Siam chairs and the Concrete pillows where the objects become simply sculptural.
 
In a humble and silent career spanning more than 15 years, he has sought to challenge the boundaries between real and unreal, aesthetics and symbolism. In recent years he has increasingly taken his practice beyond the actual physical creation and works on visual concepts using digital imaging to conceive his ideas. Read Less
