Hadrien Dussoix



In his search for a new aesthetic, Hadrien Dussoix blurs concepts and transcends boundaries, combining punk with the sacred, combining spontaneous inspiration with past classicism, staging contrasts and parallels.

In his aluminium castings of construction foam and polystyrene, Dussoix explores the urge to break down given boundaries and titles them as “The End of the World”, as phrase-like as it is meaningful. The dull grey tone of the raw aluminium harmonises the raw materials and forms and at the same time reveals their easily destructible properties. Organic and geometric forms seem to proliferate unchecked, to outgrow themselves in disorder, to dissolve or explode. Neither accusing nor moralizing, they create the image of a world that presents itself as elements in dissolution without fixed boundaries and fathoms a wide scope of interpretation.

Hadrien Dussoix (*1975) lives and works in Geneva. He studied at the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts and Haute Ecole Supérieure des Arts Appliqués in Geneva. Between 2006 and 2008, he won the prestigious “Swiss Art Awards” three
