Fabian Bürgy skirts the thin line between real and unreal

‘True contemporary art has to reflect periodic phenomenons and should never be afraid to use the technical tools of its time’. That’s what Swiss conceptual artist and sculptor Fabian Bürgy once said and still practices. His extraordinary digital creations really shift between real and unreal. For him, in this over visualized world, it’s the powerful images that are truly intimidating. Bürgy uses all kinds of things, like belts, dog tails and nails, to create his ‘slightly violent and disturbing process of transformation, misplacement and dysfunction of things’.


About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
