All Your Vectors Are Belongs To Us
Gallery TM51 3.9.2013 - 13.10.2013
"My forms are abstractions of abstractions, not spontaneous creations emerging from the hand of the artist but rather meticulously constructed software systems that contain within the principles of their creation. In order to create, I must reduce my irrational intuitions about geometric logic and kinetic behaviors to unambiguous logic that is ultimately translated into executable code."
Marius Watz (1973) is a Norwegian artist and curator born inside a computer, working with generative art of which he has been and still is somewhat of a pioneer in Norway. Marius is using computer code to explore virtual spaces defined by rule-based systems producing works he himself often refers to as visual hedonism.
Marius currently lives and works in New York where he has also been giving lectures at New York City College of Technology as well as series of artist workshops. He has exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), ITAU Cultural (Sao Paolo), Todaysart (The Hague) and Museumsquartier (Vienna), and has been lecturing extensively in the US and Europe, including the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, and Centre Pompidou (Paris). His work PRIME was commissioned by Bybanen light rail systems in Bergen (2010), and you just might have seen his installation ARCS at the top of Rockheim, Trondheim (2012).
At Gallery TM51 Marius will show different works produced during the last couple of years, ranging from a large light sculpture to wall pieces. All in different materials.
