Jay Rechsteiner is a multi-disciplinary & conceptual Swiss artist based in London. Anarchic and political themes, tackled with a sense of the ridiculous are central to Rechsteiner’s practice. Rechsteiner’s main interest lies within transitory states – states between states. He has exhibited internationally (Japan, USA, UK, Switzerland, Italy, Portugal, France) in galleries and museums such as the Fukuoka Art Museum, Whitechapel Gallery, Tate Liverpool, the London Art Fair & the Venice Biennale. In 2005 Rechsteiner joined forces with Portuguese Punk musician Victor ‘Torpedo’ Silveira and together they started working under the pseudonym Sardine & Tobleroni. After an intensive and creative five-year period, the collaboration ended and Rechsteiner began a new body of work.

Jay Rechsteiner is currently working on three projects such as verSuche (sculptural installation, constructions and orchestrated arrangements  http://jayrechsteiner.com/sculptural_installation.htm), monoloqueArt (a collection of monologues by artists  http://jayrechsteiner.com/monoloqueart.htm), and a painting series titled BAD PAINTING (http://jayrechsteiner.com/bad_painting.htm)
