Peter Wüthrich

Since the 1990s, Swiss artist Peter Wüthrich (b. 1962) has been using books as material. Books appeal to him through their aesthetics qualities and the haptics of the covers or individual pages, but also because of the literary content, which goes beyond the purely informative. By creating objects, sculptures, wall and room installations, Wüthrich turns the versatility of this source material into formally very different works, with which he creates profound and playful connections.
