2019: Mark Fridvalszki: PORTFOLIO

Mark Fridvalszki

1981, Budapest, lives and works in Leipzig and Berlin 

Mark Fridvalszki graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna in 2011 and was a post-graduate 'Meisterschüler' student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Leipzig (HGB, 2014 - 2017). Fridvalszki is the co-initiator and graphic editor of the publishing project and cross-disciplinary movement Technologie und das Unheimliche (or T+U, since 2014).

In Fridvalszki's most recent works he creates abstract geometries and 'immaterial' spaces that investigate the dramatic tensions between ruin-like atmospheres and sentient materialism. An important feature of the artist's toolbar is an experimental approach towards different media: he mingles collages, wallpaper environments, found and manufactured objects, digital printing as well as other printing techniques into room-filling installations. He remains strongly influenced by appropriation, subcultures, attitudes of romanticism and nostalgia as well as contemporary theories of materialism and media archaeology.
