Camille Regli (Switzerland) lives and works between Basel and Zurich after multiple years in London. She holds a MA in Cultural Studies at King’s College London and the MAS in Curating at the ZHdK. After working at the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, she acquires experience in arts communications, working with institutions including the Swiss Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, Gropius Bau, Berlin, the Istanbul Biennale and more recently the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève.
Her curatorial research focuses primarily on ‘small’ (as opposed to overarching) narratives that sustain a feminist and alternative reading of contemporary society. She is part of the curatorial board of the OnCurating Project Space, where she curated groups shows such as “Choreographing the Public”,”Queering the exhibition“, “I will be your idol”, and the durational performance “This is your captain” in collaboration with 2019 Zürich moves. She also launched the discursive series “I might be wrong” and the digital platform “inter:archive” (inter-archive.oncurating-space.org) that collects sources and contributions on intersectionality.
In 2020, she was selected as part of the 3 residents of the international Young Curators Residency Programme at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo in Turin, opening the exhibition “Waves Between Us”. From 2021 she is going to be the co-founder and curator of KRONE COURONNE, a new art space in Biel/Bienne. Camille is also a regular editor and contributor of the academic journal OnCurating.org.
“In the past years, my personal and professional ethos has led me to endeavour for greater transparency, conversation and collaboration in the arts, understanding art as a form of action and expression in a polarised world. From democratising access to giving voice to the margins and alternative cultures, I am interested in art’s potential not only in triggering emotions and experience but in eliciting questions and openness. In my view, the potential of art lies in its ability to enter the realm of imagination and think of the world in different ways. I like to work with artists who use fiction as claim and new forms of storytelling, specifically by means of new technologies, video or performance art. Creating immersive environments and working site-specifically is at the core of my curatorial practice.”
