Beat Kuert’s video and photographic works – definitions he considers inadequate and misleading – are clearly a sort of “digital alchemy”. He could be a shaman of art, who is well aware that over the centuries a Renaissance altar has led a historical discourse with many devotees, often protecting and comforting them and – according to some – even producing miraculous events.
Perhaps this is why the works of Beat Kuert – although they have been created with tools from the worlds of cinema, photography and computers – always retain a pronounced and unmistakable pictorial connotation. They persistently reveal the unconditional will to be “works made by art.” (From the catalogue essay by Enzo di Martino)
