Gaudenz Signorell

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Gaudenz Signorell is a visual artist living and working in Domat/Ems, Switzerland.

Gaudenz works in the medium of photography and has a non-hierarchical approach to image gathering, collecting images from a broad range of sources. His pictures ermege while making them, playfully, intuitively, and without fixed rules he cuts, glues, paints over, assembles and combines to create new images. The new work is then photographed and dematerialised at the same time.

Landis & Gyr Stiftung, Switzerland

The Landis & Gyr foundation awards studio scholarships to Swiss artists and cultural professionals in London, Budapest, Sofia and Zug. Its London-based residency partnership with Acme was established in 1987, and provides six month long work/live opportunities for ten Swiss artists per year. Artists are selected for the programme directly by Landis & Gyr Stiftung and must demonstrate a track record of achievement in their field. Over two hundred visual artists, curators, writers, musicians and composers have benefitted from the programme. Residencies are based in Stepney, E1 and are available to Swiss residents only
