2014 – present
Verbier 3-D Sculpture Park
The Verbier 3-D Foundation is a non-profit cultural organization dedicated to promoting contemporary art, environmentalism and education through its Artist Residency and Sculpture Park.
Founded in 2010 by New York-based artist Madeleine Paternot and Verbier-based artist Kiki Thompson, the Foundation creates an educational and cultural Artist Residency and Sculpture Park at an altitude of 2,300 meters, inspired by the stunning Alpine environment of Verbier, Switzerland.
Our mission is to support emerging and established talent by pushing artists out of their comfort zones, fostering development that might not be possible in the studio space.
I co-curate the residencies with curator Paul Goodwin with a perspective of creating a cross-disciplinary residency for artists to investigate modern environmental issues in creative dialogue with local scholars, scientists and the public to chronicle the impact of the surrounding natural environment.
The Sculpture Park is an evolving display of multimedia works developed during the residencies from artists such as Olaf Breuning, James Capper, Onyedika Chuke, Gregory Coates, Tarik Hayward, Chloe Dewe Mathews, Zak Ové, Will Ryman, and Josette Taramarcaz, among many others.
