Descrizione Opera / Biografia


Yannick Lambelet was born on September 11th, 1986 in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland. Graduated from ECAL (University of Arts and Design, Lausanne, CH) and holder of a Master’s degree in Visual Arts oriented European Art Ensemble, Lambelet has benefited from numerous residencies including the Cité Internationale des Arts de Paris, and the Casa Suiza of Buenos Aires. In 2018, he received the Network Cultural Prize.
Being a gay artist born and raised in a Jehovah’s Witness family, Yannick has developed obsessions for sexualities, destruction and love. Identifying as a digital native, Lambelet approaches the concept of painting with digital layers of construction. His painting grounded in post-Internet art theory constantly wander between reality and virtuality, with humour and sarcasm. Mixing the Apocalypse (where zombies become a metaphor for humankind and also a subject to experiment the gesture of painting) with the queer culture (where fetichism reflects the beauty of liberty and empowerment) and video games references, Lambelet Lambelet creates a frustrating feeling of disorientation becoming a metaphor to speak about our current physical and emotional estrangement in order to generate a plurality of associations and meanings.
