Paulo Wirz │ Studio ResidencyEgypt
In 2008 Paulo Wirz arrived in Switzerland for the first time in order to learn German. After studying at the ECAL, Gerrit Rietveld Academie and ZHDK, he decided to move to Geneva where recently he completed the MFA program in contemporary practices at the HEAD and received the Prix “New Heads”.
Paulo’s work will be presented at the Kunst(Zeug)Haus, Rapperswil, on the 24th of November this year and at the moment he is taking part in the “ZHDK Migros Herdern Atelier Program” in Zürich.
In Egypt, Paulo will be researching topics related to ancient board games, mummification process / life after death rituals, and experimenting with ancient techniques of glass blowing, metal casting, and the Egyptian faience.
