Art Madrid'24 – Simon Berger

Simon Berger

Herzogenbuchsee, Suiza, 1976

Contemporary artist of Swiss origin, Simon Berger speaks a singular plastic language by exploring the depth of his material, the glass, that he pounds or cracks with a hammer. This way, a window becomes the support of an expansion done by impacts playing with transparency. His lacerated portraits, sculpted in glass, bring the gaze into the intricacies of transparent wounds that he calls “morphogenesis”. A pioneer of this technique, his broken pieces evoke his fascination for faces: “It is a discovery from abstract fogging to figurative perception”, explains the artist.

His art shakes up the interpretation of reality and his esthetics put an interesting spin on the “broken window” theory.
