Axel Huber

Swiss artist Axel Huber’s early work consisted of large monochrome paintings in black, which opened a permanent dialogue that the artist maintains with paint, haunted by the darkness of night. Huber's creative journey began in the 1980s following Fluxus, as the artist participated in performances that crossed paths with Sigmar Polke, Nam June Paik, and even Martin Kippenberg. Photography occupies an important place in the artist’s practice, though he is known to have said “fuck materials” and uses them all without hierarchy.
