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-discipinary 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 a 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 nostalgy as well as contemporary theories of materialism and media archeology.
