For HOT MESS Mathias Euwer is presenting two works.
In the video Untitled, a dark and blurry abstract shape appears, it moves slowly. As the video progresses, it very slowly emerges from the blur, stimulating the viewer's imagination. It is evocative but not explicit. Towards the end the shape comes out of the blur creating an acceleration and a visual and mental event.
Mathias Euwer is a multidisciplinary artist. Sciences and physics in particular, are a recurring source of reflection and perspective in his work. With a strong attention to materials and craftsmanship, Euwer crystallises his fascination in a spontaneous and sensitive way through sculptures and installations which often engage the viewer’s own perception and imagination. Through precise, often extreme, engineered or handcrafted sculptures, he paradoxically points the blurry, the elusive. Since 2012 he has made the question of edge, of limit, increasingly central to his artistic practice.
