Flurin Bisig (b. 1982) is a Swiss artist based in Glarus. He works mainly with abstract sculptures, conceptually derived from a fundamental drawing basis. Bisig primarily researches the conditions of sculpture. By constantly questioning their properties and definitions anew, he finds impulses for his considerations everywhere in everyday life. In the latest sculptures Bisig dialogues with classic sculpture by working with such
a traditional material as wood and marble.
Simultaneously the artist also succeeds in skillfully molding his working matter. In addition to his sculptural practice, Bisig‘s drawings and collages not only complement his sculptures but are part of the same artistic process. After his education at the Hochschule für Kunst in Luzern and the Universität der Künste in Berlin, Bisig lived in Brussels. He has been awarded different scholarships and prizes, while also participating in international artistic residences.
Bisig’s work has been shown internationally, in Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Belgium, the
Netherlands, the USA and Brazil.
