Pierre Sigg, a Swiss entrepreneur with deep ties to contemporary art and technology, is the driving force behind the Sigg Art Foundation. Known for his substantial collection of art, Pierre transitioned from hosting artist residencies in his family home in Le Castellet, France, to establishing the Sigg Art Foundation. This non-profit organization embodies Pierre’s vision to actively engage in the art world beyond collecting, by providing artists a nurturing environment to evolve their ideas, particularly those working at the intersection of traditional mediums and emerging technologies.
