Mathieu Zurstrassen

My artistic process is largely guided by the almost obsessive need to analyze the mechanisms of things, to understand its inner workings. This approach generates hybrid works that sometimes offer a new perspective on society, a satirical metaphor, sometimes caustic and certainly shifted reality. 
By diverting everyday objects or matters of their first use, playing on the duality between simplicity and complexity or the ephemeral and the duration, the proposals always offer various degrees of interpretation punctuated with humor as well as philosophical and contemporary societal questionings.
