Reto Steiner (*1978, Frutigen, Switzerland) completed an apprenticeship in stone sculpture and subsequently worked at the art foundry in St. Gallen / Sitterwerkareal. He was assistant to Swiss artist Markus Raetz. After a Master's degree in Contemporary Arts Practice at the Hochschule der Künste in Bern, he won the Jury Award of the Skulptur-Biennale in Winterthur and was awarded the Aeschlimann Corti Scholarship as well as numerous residencies in Switzerland and abroad. He regularly exhibits in group and solo exhibitions. He lives and works in Frutigen.
At the Centro Internazionale di Scultura, Reto worked on a series of installations in Cristallina marble, creating a series of impressive works. These artworks represent different sculptures staged together around a galvanised metal structure. In terms of content, they represent fragments of the human body. In Peccia, the artist has embarked on a long creative journey full of energy and intuition.
