About Yves Scherer

The sculpture, installation, and mixed-media works of Post-internet artist Yves Scherer bring themes from digital culture to three dimensions, combining household materials with online imagery and interfaces. Focusing on the porous boundaries between media, virtual space, and everyday life, his series “Closer” examines the fictional realities of celebrity, digitally reconstructing the nude figure of actress Emma Watson to cyborg-like effects. Interested in surfaces and screens, Scherer often uses tatami mats as part of his works—a reference to the artist’s own living habits and typical of this form of contemporary Arte Povera.
