Michael Noser

Great intensity and mushrooming thought processes—Michael Noser’s multimedia work is propelled by an examination of processes of perception and representation. He explores the complexity of making and transposing pictures, perceiving the world, self-portrayal, and the power of the imagination in extensive painted and drawn chronicles, but also in multilayered video works, sculptural figures, and long-term actions. Ongoing studies of art history accompany his work, whose formal qualities are linked to notable positions from Henri Matisse to Martin Kippenberger. 

Since obtaining a master of fine arts at the Hochschule Luzern, Noser has been awarded several grants and studio stipends. His works have been presented in numerous solo and group exhibitions, for instance, at the Kunstmuseum and Kunsthalle Luzern—as well as in the extensive artist monograph Heart Still Beating. Michael Noser’s work is represented in several private and public collections, such as the art collections of the Cantons of Zurich und Lucerne. 

*1985 in Winterthur, lives und works in Canton of Zurich.
