Artist Talk: PRICE (Mathias Ringgenberg)

at Dynamo Textil Werkbereich
Donnerstag, 8. November 2018 - 21:00 bis 23:00

Work presentation of Brazilian born, Zurich based Performer Artist: PRICE (Mathias Ringgenberg)

Dynamo Artist and Curators Talk is a program curated by Anne Brand Galvez

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Mathias Ringgenberg aka PRICE
is a Zürich based artist working with a hybrid fictional character born from the sea of information that explores the emotional disorientation of a generation having grown up with mass culture, neoliberalism and the Internet. 
By probing the mechanisms of pop, PRICE’s musical stories evoke instability, fear, and romantic disillusion. Where Do You Wanna Go Today (2017) reinvents itself from clubs to art galleries, using these diverse contexts to affirm the frustration and solitude of a generation he considers to be down-and-out. For Mathias, performance – including the rigorous of rehearsal and physical discipline – provides a necessary corrective at a moment when the Internet has enhanced the cultural dominance of the image, now more easily produced and disseminated than ever before. The presence of the artist’s body not only acts as a crucial point of orientation for navigating the practice but also serves as a reminder of the material register crucial to identity, emotion and communication. At a time when storytelling has taken over the collective psyche, the artist’s sincere and ambiguous presence has testimonial value. Mathias Ringgenberg studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam before receiving an MA Performing Arts and Theater from HKB, Bern in 2015.

The talk is held in English and will be livestreamed  https://www.youtube.com/c/AnnemarieBrand/live
