Janik Bürgin

We act as Janik Bürgin's manager.


Janik Bürgin, born 1994 in Basel, makes art from rubbish. He works with the medium of photography. The Swiss artist's starting point is always tangible, plastic objects, which are reduced to sensory colour and form properties due to the given close-up view and their associated blurriness. Janik Bürgin is currently represented by Galerie Carzaniga, Basel, and Galerie Urs Meile, Lucerne and Beijing, and has been exhibited several times at Art Basel 2022.

Janik Bürgin exploits the medium of photography with a purposeful painterly endeavour: On the one hand, he engages with the traditional genres of painting and thus creates images of people, landscapes and situations that spring from his own lived reality. In this respect, Janik Bürgin plays with the boundaries of the visible and the medial possibilities of photography. The focus of his work is not photographic practice in the classical sense, but the creation of images and a reality associated with them.
