Born in 1974, lives and works in Geneva

Patrick Tschudi's work takes as its point of departure elements of the world, nature, man, or society. Whether urban practices, or more personal, even sexual events, animal presences or the movement of public or private vehicles, the artist's representations come alive as pure ideographic figures in the urban space. He slips his meanings into a very expressive simplified artificial language that is effectively connected with the pictographic tradition and the theory of signals.

In the background of Tschudi's approach, there is the leveling of all things and all events in the atonal view of contemporary industrial society. An eminently critical and despairing outlook whose esthetic and often comedic values go far beyond a simple dissertation on political ethics. Patrick Tschudi is a student of the postgrade immédiat - arts et media (ESBA/HEAA)
