The Chapuisat Brothers

The Chapuisat Brothers:

The Chapuisat Brothers

Work from their oeuvre

“We both received an artistic education abroad for a number of years before ending up in Geneva in 2001, where our contrasting experiences led us to develop an interest in spatial studies. Our constructions transform space, turning interior and exterior boundaries inside out and toying with the perception of a subjective reality. They demand visitors’ active participation, putting them into the position of being an explorer. These environments break down visual and intellectual habits, testing the explorers and obliging them to trust in their senses. Often compared to cocoons or burrows, these installations harbour striking powers. They provoke ambiguous emotional reactions in visitors, like dreams which mingle curiosity, surprise and discomfort.” - The Chapuisat Brothers
