Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency
Heinrich Lüber is a Swiss performance artist. His work deals with public space and the different perspectives available to people within these spaces. In his performances Heinrich floats in mid-air, bending at odd angles and balancing on top of identically dressed colleagues. He creates whimsical and surreal visions that stand out from the world around him.
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
