Sculptor Étienne Krähenbühl, b. 1953 in Vevey, attended the Lausanne School of Fine Arts, and went on to study in Paris and Barcelona before setting up his “laboratory of the imagination” in Yverdon, where he defies the laws of physics. Working with metal requires immense physical effort, and yet his tons of steel appear poised to fly off to another world. The artist uses the contrasts, textures and reflections inherent to metal to evoke something mysterious and far away.
