Jürg Stäuble

One of Switzerland's most respected contemporary artists, Jürg Stäuble's sculptures and installations work with subtle disturbances and algorithmic modifications. Continuously innovating with materials and techniques, he is always searching for every more sophisticated forms which, despite their formalist backbone, often evoke natural phenomena like moving water or stony deposits. He is as comfortable drawing or taking photos with his pinhole camera as he is working with architects and computer programmers. Between natural memory and future visionary, between the hi-tech and the primitive, his elegant and thoughtful practise keeps on asking the right questions.


Born in 1948 in Switzerland, Jürg Stäuble has been an independent artist since 1972 and teaches at the Basel art school. He works primarily as a sculptor and has had numerous individual and group exhibitions.
