Ines Marita Schaerer Research Artist

Ines Marita Schärer (b. 1987, CH ) is currently based in Brussels and Switzerland and works across poetry, performance, installation, sound art and experimental music. She is concerned with the precarities and vulnerabilities of diverse beings within predominant (power) structures and explores voice and words as a means of establishing relationality and re-imagining their conditions and environments.

Her practice is informed by the given context, permeable for various forms of alternative knowledges, nourished and driven by thinkers, co-thinkers, collaborators and allies.

Ines holds a Master in Art Practice from DAI, Dutch Art Institute in Holland (2019) and a Bachelor in Fine Arts from HKB, Bern (2012). She spent residencies in Paris (visarte Graubünden, 2013) and Vienna (Kanton Graubünden, 2014) and has participated in group exhibitions at the STADTGALERIE BERN or KUNSTHAUS LANGENTHAL, among others, and has participated in various projects in public space, such as ORTUNG in Chur, KUNSTWEGE in Pontresina, or KUNSTPLÄTZE in Bern. One of her main projects +41 (0)800 00 12 16 – a voice message project is an experimental platform for poetic pieces and voice based works (www.0800001216.ch);
