Vincent Kohler

My work develops mainly in the field of sculpture, painting and publishing.


My sculptures play on different registers such as the illusion, the diversion, the transformation or the enlargement of domestic objects, daily, popular or fantasized.
The design of my pieces often comes from an interweaving of ideas and shapes from images of various sources and quirks discovered during travels.
In parallel with my training at Ecal, I founded a collective of artists, PAC, with whom we exhibited and managed a CAP exhibition space in Fribourg until 2003.
I am currently part of the collective, Abc.
I teach bachelor and master degree at the Haute école d’art et de design in Geneva.
I also have a training as a musician, drummer, and played in several formations including Kunst, a rock band.
