Switzerland

It is at the heart of everyday life, made of anecdotes gleaned at random, from striking encounters and upsetting experiences, disturbing realities or shocking news events, that Gilles Dusabe captures the spark that feeds his thoughts on the issues of individual freedom, social justice, equity, tolerance or human rights. These pathways give birth to challenging works, sometimes disturbing but never indifferent.

Gilles is a Rwandan-Swiss artist, living and working between Kigali (Rwanda) and Geneva (Switzerland). Educated at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland and then at CCA Kitakyushu in Japan and at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, he varies the materials and forms of expression according to his inspiration. A great traveller and committed humanist, Gilles is an attentive observer of his time and is sensitive to the various issues that affect the lives of his contemporaries. He works through a desire to question our perception of the world but also, this desire to position himself as a storyteller of his time and a guardian of the collective memory.
