The work of Manuel Burgener is marked by a subversive manipulation of the viewers’ perception. Burgener’s intricate craftsmanship of material and form allows an ironic distortion of expectation, often renegotiating perceived limits between art and design and process and result.
His recent solo shows include 'Untitled' at Secret Space, Biel (2021), 'Daily Dose' at Salon des Amateurs, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf (2020), 'Disbelief' at Espace d'Art Contemporain, Porrentruy (2019) and 'Interlude' at Galerie Maria Bernheim, Zürich (2019).
