Acme Studios — Rémy Markowitsch

Supporting Artists since 1972

Rémy Markowitsch

Landis & Gyr Stiftung Residency

Rémy Markowitsch is a Swiss artist working with lens-based media and publishing. Rémy has consistently employed books as the point of departure for an art practice that analyses the language of the publishing process (mechanical reproduction) in order to make artworks that give an account of the complexities of reading and looking. His work explores themes as diverse as literature and research, expeditions and discoveries, the appropriation of the foreign, colonialism, and the passion of collecting and addiction.

Rémy has exhibited nationally and internationally, with solo shows at: the European Month of Photography, Berlin (2018); Hilfiker Kunstprojekte, Luzern (2011); the Royal Academy of Arts, London (2008); Coninx Museum, Zürich (2005); Kunsthalle Nürnberg (2005); Kirchner Museum, Davos (2004); and Kunstmuseum Luzern (2003)

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
