Supporting Artists since 1972

Angelo Alfredo Luedin

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Angelo Alfredo Luedin is a photographer and filmmaker. His practice explores time in an idiosyncratic way. In 1979 he took portraits of people in Sicily with his Polaroid camera, observed them as they looked at the resulting image, and then sought out his models a week later to see and photograph what place the Polaroid had taken up in their households in the meantime.

The connection to photography is also visible in his documentaries. The continuity of the action adapts to different activities; stretching, compressing, and manipulating experienced time. Angelo’s films include Scrap – Exploring the Edge (2019), Thomas Hirschhorn Gramsci Monument (2015), Trophies of Time (2005) and Builders of the Nation (1990).

Artists are selected for the programme directly by Landis & Gyr Stiftung and must demonstrate a track record of achievement in their field.
