Acme Studios — Gabriela Löffel

Supporting Artists since 1972

Gabriela Löffel

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Gabriela Löffel works with time-based media, focusing on fields such as politics and economics. She observes the structures that regulate the representation of realities, which might be called the space of mediation.

Fragmenting, translating and shifting from “the direct” to interpretation and mise-en-scène are strategies she uses in her video installations. A work procedure through which she creates space of questioning, of reasonable doubt and disturbances.

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
