Artist duo AATB: Andrea Anner & Thibault Brevet

Arts at CERN and Pro Helvetia have announced the artist duo AATB as the selected artists for the first edition of Connect, a three-month residency at CERN aimed at artists from Switzerland with a distinct interest in fundamental science and interdisciplinary approaches. 

During their 3-month residency at CERN, AATB aims to explore representational methodologies of space and time through their work and research in Non-Industrial Robotics.

About the artist duo

AATB explores the idea of Non-Industrial Robotics. The studio is experimenting with industrial robotic systems such as robotic arms and industrial automation processes. It develops works engaging with Human-Machine Interactions through the lens of kinetic and interactive situations.

Andrea Anner was born in Zurich, Switzerland, graduated from ECAL in 2012 with a MA in Art Direction: Type Design, and in 2008 from ZHDK with a BA in Visual Communication.
