Yves examines the ruthlessness of celebrity culture

“I’m inspired by pop music, literature, celebrity culture and fashion.”

Born in 1987 in Switzerland, Yves Scherer attempts to question the influence of media, commercialisation and alienation of sexual and social identity. With an MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in London, he made his debut at Berlin's Galerie Guido W. Baudach. That first show was called “Closer”, and unveiled the naked vulnerabilities of celebrities to the general public. Yet rather that portray the tragedy of fame, Scherer illustrates that fame is a double-edged sword of both good and bad. For Absolut Art, Scherer has submitted a series of self-portraits showing varying levels of undress. They relate to Scherer’s sources of inspiration, which includes pop music, celebrity culture and fashion, and highlights potent ideas surrounding identity, privacy, sexuality and media.
