Publisher Note

In his artistic work Boris Rebetez deals with space, with places where city and landscape, architecture and nature meet and condense into a multi-layered whole. By means of drawings, collages and sculptures, he investigates our surroundings, exposing layers and finding images that reflect the complexity of the present day.
The present illustrated book is published on the occasion of his exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Solothurn. It covers not only the installation works created for Solothurn, which take the atmosphere of the rooms as their point of departure and subtly intervene in them, but also presents for the first time all the site-specific interventions the artist has realized to date. The book is supplemented by a representative selection of sculptures, photo collages and works on paper in which the artist continues his investigations into space.
Barbara von Flüe deals in her text contribution with the artist’s sculptural interventions, Pierre Tillet reflects on the relationship between art and architecture in general and specifically in relation to the work of Boris Rebetez, and Katharina Dunst starts from a series in which the artist deals with urban utopias, especially those of the 1950s. Finally, Michael Van den Abeele uses observations from science fiction literature to develop a metaphor for art in general and for Boris Rebetez in particular.
