Denis Savary

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Denis Savary’s multifaceted practice includes drawing, sculpture, installation, video, and performance. From single-channel observational videos, to anthropomorphic sculptures and traditional drawings of nudes, Denis’ practice freely appropriates and references narratives from art history, literature, and science.

Denis' work has been shown in group and solo shows internationally, including Swiss Cultural Centre, Paris; Musée d’Orsay, Paris; MAMCO, Geneva; Musée d'Art et d'Histoire, Geneva; Musée Rath, Geneva and Swiss Institute, New York. Denis has received grants and awards from Fondation Vaudoise pour la Culture and Bourse de la Fondation Leenaards.

Landis & Gyr Stiftung, Switzerland

The Landis & Gyr foundation awards studio scholarships to Swiss artists and cultural professionals in London, Budapest, Sofia and Zug. Its London-based residency partnership with Acme was established in 1987, and provides six month long work/live opportunities for ten Swiss artists per year. Artists are selected for the programme directly by Landis & Gyr Stiftung and must demonstrate a track record of achievement in their field. Over two hundred visual artists, curators, writers, musicians and composers have benefitted from the programme. Residencies are based in Stepney, E1 and are available to Swiss residents only
