Born in 1978 at Bienne, Suisse
Raphaël Hefti mainly creates installations and video art. He focuses on industrial production techniques and works with technicians, proposing experimental protocols to put materials to the test. He seeks to introduce the random and the accidental into production lines to create something unexpected. By exploiting the physical properties of materials, he diverts and subverts the production process, resulting in singular aesthetic objects.
Born in 1978 in Biel-Bienne, Raphaël Hefti apprenticed in electronics and mechanics before deciding to devote himself to art in 1998. He lives and works between Zurich and London.
