Philémon Otth’s artistic practice revolves around challenging questions of time and temporalities, history and histories, material and immaterial, transparency and opacity. He is interested in exploring sites and situations by questioning the implications of images and objects within their spatial and socio-historical contexts. Otth approaches these ideas through configurations of form and language, displacement and shifting strategies.
Philémon Otth has exhibited work at CAN – Centre d’Art de Neuchâtel; Plymouth Rock, Zürich; and Kunsthaus Baselland, Muttenz, all Switzerland, among others.
