Beat Kuert’s images are born from the performances by dust & scratches; they lose their physical aspects and the realism of the performance from which they originate – some sort of body-art – and acquire a valence that reveals the same artificiality as painting and sculpture. They undergo the very same alchemical transformation.
His symbolical figures represent a living existence which the artist perceives as form/work of art. It is therefore obvious that Beat Kuert uses a sort of artifice in his work, replacing the “performance”, or the direct display of the event, with the video record of the observed event.
Through this artifice, it gains a diverse legibility, and a different and transfigured significance.
