Fabian Marti, (b. 1979) has been described as the spiritual leader of the Swiss art scene, though he currently divides his time between Europe and the Americas. His oeuvre ranges from individual production to the creation of an idyllic residency for fellow artists (his ‘TwoHotel, a simple shack that he created in situ in Brazil) or co-directing the Hacienda art space in Zurich. The many exhibitions he has taken part in include the central exhibition of the Venice Biennale in 2011, or bringing the TwoHotel to Basel for the inaugural presentation at the TANK gallery of the Institut Kunst. Marti’s solo output is characterised by an interest in altered consciousness, as well as the meeting of the organic and the mechanical or virtual.
