biography

1955 born in Zurich, Switzerland
lives and works in Wettingen, Switzerland and Genoa, Italy

Beat Zoderer completed an apprenticeship as architectural draftsman and worked in architectural offices from 1971–78. Since 1979 he works as an independent artist. Two studio grants of the city of Zurich for Genoa in 1986 and New York in 1988 were followed by further grants from the city of Zurich. In 1995 he was awarded the Manor Art Prize and in 1998 he received an award from the Max Bill / Georges Vantongerloo Foundation, Zumikon/Zurich. His installations, sculptures, assemblages and collages are constructed in constantly changing new shapes, colours and materials (often office or household items found in department stores) and are part of private and institutional collections like Kunsthaus Zürich, Zurich, Switzerland, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Bonn, Sammlung Bundestag (both Germany) and European and US private collections. Reminiscent of the work of Mondrian, van Doesberg or Venet, the complexity of each piece consciously allows imperfections and mistakes. Zoderer moves towards a concrete and constructive position in art.
