Augustin Rebetez (b. 1986, Switzerland) makes vivacious poetry burst out of simple materials. e contrasts that he stages – with pictures, drawings, installations or stop-motion movies– depict a tragicomical reality. e results plays to the creation of a visually playful, moving, sometimes dizzying or gloomy universe.
Since 2009, he has participated to numerous exhibitions, mostly in Europe but also in North America, South Korea, Nigeria, Mexico or Lebanon and was awarded by PhotoFolio Review at the Rencontres d’Arles in France (2010), e Swiss Photo Award (2012), the Kiefer Hablitzel Prize (2012) and the Vevey International Photo Award (2013-2014).
In 2014 he was exhibiting his work at the Biennale of Sydney. In 2015 he did his rst creation for the stage at the éâtre de Vidy in Lausanne.
