Gast Bouschet is a visual artist and occult philosopher. Since the 1980s, alone or in collaboration with Nadine Hilbert, he has created a complex body of work that challenges the fundamental principles underlying structure, visibility and power. His work spans a wide range of media, including photography, sound, video, painting, sculpture and writing.
Bouschet’s art has been shown internationally in numerous exhibitions, including Ujazdowski Castle Centre for Contemporary Art, Warsaw Poland; BPS22 Museum Charleroi, Belgium; Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art Porto, Portugal; Darling Foundry Montreal, Canada; Cube Space Taipei, Taiwan; Philharmonie, Luxembourg; Opderschmelz, Dudelange, Luxembourg; Muzeum Sztuki Lodz, Poland; Casino Forum d’Art Contemporain, Luxembourg; Mudam Contemporary Art Museum of Luxembourg; Busan Biennale of Contemporary Art, South-Korea; Camouflage Johannesburg, South Africa; MUHKA Antwerp, Belgium; Contretype Brussels, Belgium and CCA Glasgow, Scotland, to name a few. Together with Nadine Hilbert, he represented Luxembourg at the 53rd Venice Biennale.
In recent years, Gast Bouschet has increasingly focused on what has been described as a primordial and uniquely blackened eco-sorcery that he practices away from the public eye in the Ardennes Forest.
