Acme Studios — Patricia Haemmerle

Supporting Artists since 1972

Patricia Haemmerle

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Patricia Haemmerle is a Swiss printmaker and photographer. Patricia’s works experiment with the medium of photography itself, repeatedly pushing it to its technical limits. Colour is particularly important in her works, and she started working with colour filters in the laboratory early on in her practice, experiments that have most recently resulted in the on-going series Out of the Dark.

Patricia has undertaken residencies in Venice, Vienna and London, and has also worked and studied in New York. She has recently exhibited solo projects at Atelierausstellung Brotfabrik in Vienna (2015); Tart Gallery in Zürich (2015); and Elektrizitätswerk Jona-Rapperswil (2013).

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
