DANIEL CHERBUIN
 
born 1971 in Zofingen, Switzerland
Lives and work in Zurich
 
Daniel Cherbuin learned audio-video electronics ab initio. At the beginnings of commercial television he was the creative force of Sputnik-TV, an innovative and experimental channel emerging from Zurich’s underground techno scene. Cherbuin has been converting music into clips and visuals in ingenious ways for numerous bands, namely Yello and Division Kent. Various collaborations with Thomas Haemmerli, for art and experimental films and even one cine-film. For umpteen years Cherbuin has been staging the intersection of alternative art spaces and underground parties with his video installations. In doing so Cherbuin’s oeuvres impress with highly innovative montages, idiosyncratic alliances of images, as well as an anarchic tenor: with irony, and pastiche Cherbuin is mocking the blasé in commerce and culture and smoothes the sublimes and ponderous of the art system away.
