Raphael Linsi

Artist (excerpt). Video. 2010

RAPHAEL LINSI is a Swiss artist living and working in Basel. For his graduation project, he asked his mentor, artist, curator and Professor RENÉ PULFER, to write the word “artist”. Then he got tattooed this signature on his arm. This minimal video and a booklet published by Edition Taube document the process.

His works are a drawn reflection upon the art of art itself: thoroughly self-referential, yet no less aesthetically pleasing, and therefore deeply inscribed in the history of modernism. His works directly respond to the surrounding environment and uses everyday experiences from the artist as a starting point.

And good news: during three days (from 4 March to 6 March 2011), you will have the possibility to view in person the work of RAPHAEL LINSI at Deux Piece, a small exhibition space in Basel. See you there!
