Let us know you’re coming on Facebook

on the edge where the outside ends and the interior begins,

from tomorrow to today, from today to yesterday, today, yesterday, tomorrow,
non stop,
the same movement,
the same bread,
the same taste of coffee,
the same set,
of societal punctuation marks on our lives, everything melting into one surface,
form one place to another,
form one text to another,
from one word to another,
we know something,
we don’t know all,
we are a copy of our copies,
building on our parents feelings,
to create a world on the rules of our grandparents, breaking what is right,
breaking what was bad,
building what is good,
building what was false,
living on the surface,
melting with the lines,
gathering points form place to non-place,
finding utopia,
creating dystopia,
uploading pictures,
typing feelings,
not knowing anything,
knowing everything,
posting, copying, recording, processing, deleting, moving, postponing, saving, forgetting,
becoming a surface,
without any significant points,
just diving,
from utopia to dystopia,
into blurred boundaries

Marta Masternak was born in Poznan, Poland and now lives and works in Berlin. She studied Painting, Sculpture, and Multimedia at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and Fine Art at Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Before she studied Architecture, which was natural pre-development of her current artistic activities.
Masternak´s work oscillates mostly between sculpture, film, sound, and drawing and it is presented in site-specific arrangements, that intend to evoke a mood rather than telling a story. Her installations are built from mixed media and are based on research into shapes, the fluid transition of material and color from one form to another, and how this impacts the viewer´s perception. Her compositions strike an odd balance between spontaneous expressions and precise calculations, often relating to elements of forms and lines, it creates a visual rhythm and fluid continuity, which exposes the phantom of time, the fragility of movement and the present-day human condition. Another important subject in her works is the processing of memory and how this has shifted through engagement with digital media. She is also a member of the experimental jazz/noise/punk band: permanenterror. Marta’s Residency at Flux Factory is supported by the Trust for Mutual Understanding.
