Marco Schuler’s solo exhibition at Häusler Contemporary Zürich is the first exhibition of a new series of solo presentations of young international artists who exhibit for the first time in Switzerland. New Position I, the inaugural exhibition, presents sculptures and videos by the German artist.
Marco Schuler’s work revolves around notions of physical strain and testing one’s physical limitations. Marco Schuler’s videos resemble experimental setups. The intensity of the artist’s efforts and his expressive gestures are reminiscent of rituals. In his sculptures, the artist’s body is often substituted with figurative elements.
Marco Schuler was born in 1972 in Bühl / Baden. He lives and works in Munich.
