David de Tscharner
Based between Brussels and Paris, Swiss artist David de Tscharner has developed a body of work that includes experimentations in different artistic fields such as collage, video or publishing but it is through sculpture that he asserts himself progressively. Using elements such as time constraints, geographical contexts, biographical references and participative processes to magnify the materials he handles, he turns sculpture into a catalyzer that draws links between intimate and social experiences. The profusion, sometimes confusing, of his assemblages reveals an unfailing curiosity and a strong interest for the notion of loss. In this sense, David de Tscharner’s practice can be linked to the Heideggarian idea of «Holzweg», a path that leads to nowhere except to one’s being in a state of exploration.
