Michal Martychowiec solo exhibition | Line


One morning, during the Aqua Alta (high water) I have found the house where I was stay- ing completely cut off from the passage way by water. The line of the pavement (which was under the water as well) was like a border, with that difference that it didn’t only function as a border which separated one side from the other but also a line to follow (like Ariadne’s thread).

The 5 photographs, positioned in the passage way show this ambiguity of a line, from one side separating, but at the same time continuously leading ones way towards the exit. One could say it is an allegory of life, as we follow the line of time and life we permanently remain on the border of life and death.

Michal Martychowiec 



1987 年ポーランドの南東の都市ルブリンに生まれる。2009 年から 2011 年までイギリス、セントマーチンズにて学ぶ。2007 年より写真、フィルム、オブジェといった多様なメディアを用いたインスタレーション並びに映像作品で、一つのテーマに沿った作品のシリーズを発表している。 2010 年からはオペラプロダクションの制作にも携わっており、近年のプロジェクトにポズナンオペラハウス (ポーランド)(映像インスタレーション)やソウルのオペラハウス(映像と写真)などがある。 現在は、サイトスペシフィック・ インスタレーションである”Garden”及びミクストメディアプロジェクトの”Vanito Vanitas”2つの長期プロジェクトを進めながら、 精力的に様々な国でエキシビジョンを発表しています。

彼の手法は哲学的アイディアを用いたり、様々な角度からリサーチし、それらを作品として表現するものである。 歴史的な現象を近 代的なコンテクストにし、既存の形式や価値観に疑問を投げかける表現方法である。下記で確認できる作品”The Magic Mountain” ウ?ェネチアのPalazzo Donáで行われたAwake and Dreamというグループ展で発表されている。彼のドキュメンタリー作品はArt and Documentation FestivalMie?dzynarodowy Festiwal Fotografii FotoFestiwal(Lodzで行われる写真フェスティバル)2つを含めた 3回のエキシビションで発表されている。最近のプロジェクトとしては、マルティホウ?ィエツが歴史と芸術の個性的な対話を取り上 げた注目すべき問題あるエキシビジョンの文章シリーズもそのひとつであり、またウ?ァリエーションをもった作品は鑑賞者との対話 の始まりを感じさせるであろう。また彼は日本文化への探求、そして敬意をもって日本の伝統や様式を作品に取り入れており、その 探究心は彼のライフワークの一つでもある。

同時に、マルティホウ?ィエツはニッチ・ファッション誌やヨーロパ版VOGUEGlamourVanity Fairといったいくつかの広告出版業 ともフォトグラッフィックファッションシリーズの企画・制作・演出を通して、自身の個性と極東文化への関心を反映させたコラボレーションを図っている。

Michal is a visual artist, who lives and works in Berlin, Germany and London, United Kingdom.

Born in 1987 in Lublin, Poland. He studied visual arts at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (2009?2011).

From 2007 Martychowiec has been creating number of topical photographic series, as well as video projections and extensive installations using diverse media: photography, film, drawing, objects.

From 2010, he has been working on various opera productions, creating installations, which are specific reinterpretations of time and space, and incorporate different media. Recent projects include ones for Poznan Opera House (Poland) (multi-channel video installation) and Opera House in Seoul (South Korea)(video and still projections).

Currently he is working at 2 long term projects - site specific installation Garden and a mixed-media project - Vanito Vanitas.

Artist’s practice is a means by which to explore, by alternative means, philosophical ideas that complement his research. He applies notions of Eastern philosophy with a direct reference to the European aesthetics. He is concerned with historic phenomena brought into contemporary contexts, through individual and interdisciplinary creation of which he questions and reinterprets existing forms and ideas. His work is characterised by minimalistic aesthetics resulting, inter alia, in physical and mental reduction of forms. This aesthetics has its source in the Far East ? aesthetics of emptiness.

A series Destination: The Magic Mountain was first to clearly indicate his direction,[2] it became part of an exhibition Awake and Dream at Palazzo Doná in Venice, headquarters of Signum Foundation. Following the exhibition a project commissioned by the foundation - Awake and Dream. Documentation was created and followed by 3 exhibitions, 2 of them accompanied Art and Documentation Festival and Międzynarodowy Festiwal Fotografii FotoFestiwal (International festival of photography in Lodz) while the other was shown in the place of the project's creation: Palazzo Doná.

The latter project is one from the series of documentations of considerable problematic exhibitions, where Martychowiec raises an individual dialogue with history and art.

At the same time, Martychowiec is collaborating with number of niche fashion magazines and other commercial publications including European Vogues, Glamour and Vanity Fair creating, directing and projecting photographic fashion series, being reflection of his personality and interests in the culture of the Far East.

Influenced by literature (Kafka, Pessoa, Vonnegut) cinema (Ozu, Kieślowski), the work is a juxtaposition of fine art and street art.

As well as being a musician and filmmaker, he uses all mediums as an art platform to express an ever-changing philosophical questioning on what it means to be alive.

Yu Miyashita

ドイツMille Plateauxより2011年にデビューを果たし逆輸入された電子音楽家Yu Miyashita。国内のオリジナルコンテクストアートレーベルmAtterや、オルタナティブエレクトロニクスを標榜し既存の概念から逸脱した革新的な電子音楽作品を発表するCDレーベルSIGNAL_DADAからのリリースでも知られている。2012年に発表された映像作品"Lucio Arese | Yu Miyashita - Mimic"は、Ars Electronica Animation Festival (オーストリア)Athens Video Art Festival (ギリシャ)International Film Festival Of Cinematic Arts (アメリカ)Saatchi New Director's Showcase (フランス)SIGGRAPH (シンガポール)等、世界各国の多数のフェスティバルで選出、ノミネート、上映され続ける事となる。20159月、shotahirama主宰するSIGNAL_DADAより国内初CDフルアルバム"Homage"をリリース。

"自然と涙が出た。振動無くして伝わる音など無い。彼の音楽には、肉体と精神を揺るがす振動と、崩れ逝く世界が置き去りにした情緒が確かに残っている。 - Shohei Tsuda

"崩壊する新建築に映える高度な物理現象とグリッチやらの歴史的背景からまるで脱臼したかのように旧プラトー形式の理論を無視した音楽構造。マス、アート、近年のネットコミュニティを中心としたポストカルチャー、そして彼の制作活動すべてに生じる大きな差異ひとつひとつこそが Yu Miyashita のオルタナティヴモデルたる所以であり、そしてそれが人を魅了する大きな理由でもある様に思える。今後もその構造領域の拡大が楽しみなアーティスト。" - shotahirama

Andy Graydon 18.jpeg
Andy Graydon

Andy Graydon was born and raised in Maui, Hawaii and originally trained as a filmmaker. Both experiences have been influential on his current work, which is focused on the interaction of media and environment in the forming of personal and social subjectivities. Taking the form of projected light and video installations, photographs, sound works, and architectural interventions that are attuned to site and context, Graydon’s work explores the interplay of phenomenal, ecological, and social constructions that make up our composite notion of place.
Much of this work uses cinema and pseudo-cinematic forms (including sound) to address concerns familiar to environmental art, while extending concepts of the environment to encompass the role of mediation in constructing and modulating natural and built environments, as well as "the environment", or the ground of our existence.

Graydon describes many of his projects as “science fiction ecologies,” suggesting that what is most important are the speculative potentials that circulate through an environment ? the what-ifs and the parallel dimensions; real and potential traumas and erasures; reversals of scale and time course; conflations of fictional and factual existence. Graydon’s work tries to engage the future dynamic latent within the present material existence, inviting transformations of both the environment and the perceiving subject.

Giuseppe la Spada

Giuseppe was born in Palermo in 1974. In 2002 he graduated with honors in Digital Design at the European Institute for Design in Rome, where he remained as a professor until 2004.
In 2002 he was invited to “Opera Totale 7” as one of the five best emergent Italian web designers.
In 2006 the European Institute for Design in Rome conferred him the prize for best carrier in Visual Arts.

In 2007 he won the prestigious Webby Awards, thanks to an ecological web project: the website “Mono No Aware” in support of the project “Stop Rokkasho” founded by Oscar winner Ryuichi Sakamoto. That same evening also David Bowie, Beastie Boys and YouTube founders received an award. In 2008 he worked with Sakamoto and Fennesz during the tournèe “Cendre”, which ended with the unforgettable show at Ground Zero in New York.

In 2009, together with the musician Con_cetta, he gave life to “Afleur”, a live show which in 2010 he also declined in a very particular object-book, featuring high artistic and ecological value.
In 2011, with the participation of more than 600 people, he staged an impressive human tree in Piazza Duomo, Milan, in order to raise public awareness on the problem of pollution.

The exclusive use of natural elements (water in the first place) positions him as one of the artists most sensitive to environmental issues. One of his peculiar characteristics is the ability to translate communication needs and raw ideas into 360° creative projects, making skillful use of all the different media available today. He lives and works in Milan.

Jacob Kirkegaard

Jacob Kirkegaard is a Danish artist who focuses on the scientific and aesthetic aspects of resonance, time, sound and hearing. His installations, compositions and performances deal with acoustic spaces and phenomena that usually remain imperceptible. Using unorthodox recording tools, including accelerometers, hydrophones and home-built electromagnetic receivers, Kirkegaard captures and contextualizes hitherto unheard sounds from within a variety of environments : a geyser, a sand dune, a nuclear power plant, an empty room, a TV tower, and even sounds from the human inner ear itself.

Based in Berlin, Kirkegaard is a graduate of the Academy for Media Arts in Cologne, Germany. Over the last fifteen years, Kirkegaard has presented his works at exhibitions and at festivals and conferences throughout the world such as Club Transmediale in Berlin, James Cohan Gallery and Diapason in New York as well as Museum of Jurassic Technology in Los Angeles and Museum of Contemorary Art in Denmark. He has released five albums (mostly on the British label Touch). Jacob is also a member of the sound art collective freq_out.

Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri

Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri (b.1974) is a Berlin based composer, artist and performer. Her work includes compositions for instruments and sound objects that she creates herself and in collaboration with artist Pe Lang, presented in a form of a live performance and audio-visual installation. Papalexandri’s work focuses on the reexamination and reinvention of the musical instrument as a sound generator, as well as the type of sound production and behaviour of the performer. Her work involves a continues interaction between the visual to the musical. It is also a work which demands absolute focus, clarity and economy of means.

Performances and exhibitions of Papalexandri’s works include San Francisco Art Institute (2011), de Signel (2011), November Music Festival (2011), Galerie Mario Mazzoli, Berlin (2011); Das Weekend Transmediale / Stattbad, Berlin (2011); Centre d Art Santa Mònica, Barcelona (2010); Kunsthaus L6, Freiburg (2010); Dialogue Festival, Salzburg (2010); impuls Graz, (2009); COMA Gallery (Berlin 2009); Ultrashall Festival, Berlin (2008);

Papalexandri holds a Ph.D from the University of California, San Diego where she studied with Chaya Czernowin and Rand Steiger as well as a Post-graduate Diploma in Composition from the Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien. Prior to UCSD, Papalexandri studied with Roger Redgate at Goldsmiths College, University of London, where she obtained a Bachelor of Music and Master’s degree in composition. She has received numerous prizes and awards including the Impuls award, the Dan David Prize, the Stipendienpries der Darmstadter Ferienkurse, the Kurt Weil Fellowship, the Robert Erickson Scholarship and the Berliner Kompositions stipendien 2011. In 2012 she will be in residence at the Academy
Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart.

He has exhibited and performed in several important museums, galleries and festivals, including Transmediale, Berlin; AV Festival, Newcastle; Elektra, Montreal; Sonic Acts XII, Amsterdam; Great North Museum, Newcastle; VAdxjv Kunsthalle, Sweden; Dissonanze, Rome; bitforms gallery, New York; ISEA 2008, Singapore; Netherlands Media Art Institute, Amsterdam; and Cybersonica, London.

pe lang ::


Pe Lang realizes performances and creates sound installations by ingeniously assembling magnetic, electrical and mechanical devices and even inventing new devices and prototypes. The resulting works are both visually appealing, because of their elegant and minimal kinetic qualities, but also fascinating for their acoustic features.
If chance plays an important role in his works, the artist playfully manages to balance between order and chaos by controlling the forces involved in his compositions: the precision of the mechanical devices and the confusion resulted from the collision of the various elements.

Pe Lang, born in 1974 in Switzerland, lives and works in Zurich and Berlin. He has exhibited and performed in several important museums, galleries and festivals, including Transmediale, Berlin; AV Festival, Newcastle; Elektra, Montreal; Sonic Acts XII, Amsterdam; Great North Museum, Newcastle; Växjö Kunsthalle, Sweden; Dissonanze, Rome; bitforms gallery, New York; ISEA 2008, Singapore; Netherlands Media Art Institute, Amsterdam; and Cybersonica, London.
