Pascal Häusermann (1973 in Chur) is based in Zürich in terms of working and living. He studied Theory of Arts and Media at University of Arts Zurich from 2004-2008 and worked in the context of cultural activism, as freelanced curator and lecturer. He had exhibitions in Switzerland, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Georgia Morocco and Brazil. 2014 he has his first institutional solo – exhibition at Centre PasquArt, Biel – Switzerland and 2015 he wins an international residency from the FAAP - Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado in São Paulo.
Häusermann’s latest works are concerned on the perception of space and the relation of spatial structure, e.g. public spaces to and interaction with the individual, using sculpture, installations, film, serial montage.
The exploration of space involves e.g. city and architectural structures, encircling topics like disorientation, so the tension between control and bewilderment in today’s time, the endless movement and spatio-temporal research for a relocation. The idea of the “flaneur” together with the perception of space creates an infinite structure and movement, which is mirrored in one of the guiding motives: the stairs. Häusermann uses strategies of layering, juxtaposition and comparison to investigate contemporary social and cultural issues.
