Kelly Tissot, *1995 in Haute-Savoie FR, is an artist living and working in Basel. She studied at ECAL, Lausanne, followed by a Master in Fine Arts at HGK, Basel. Working mostly in sculpture and photography, Tissot’s artworks originate from various themes and motifs around rural space and agricultural labor; they are transporting the viewer not to a historical picturesque countryside utopia, but to an abstracted and fragmented periphery between nature and culture, belonging and isolation.

Kelly Tissot’s work has been exhibited at Forde, Geneva; Plattform21 (MASI), Lugano; Kunsthaus Baselland; Country SALTS, Basel; Photography-Exhibit, Zürich; Der TANK, Basel; Lokal Int, Biel; Espace Arlaud, Lausanne.
