Matt Frieburghaus: Elevation

October 7 – November 12, 2017

Reception: Saturday, October 7, 4 – 6 PM


Artist Talk: Saturday, October 7, 2 PM

Matt Frieburghaus creates video, sound, print, and objects using processes that manipulate media. Location is a focus for gathering media and he is interested in observing and recording newly discovered places and natural phenomenon that demand attention and presence. His digital techniques and processes are used to extract information that may reveal a hidden aesthetic or generate new perspectives that reveal relationships between sight and sound. Layers of color, light, and sound create texture and motion to form visual and aural landscapes. They construct a temporal or spatial compression of space that is macroscopic but may suggest the microscopic scale. Matt’s gravitation toward sound started with synthesizers, guitars, and 4-track recorders. The visual approach reveals a life-long passion for maps, which for him chart a change in perception by translating sensory experiences.

Elevation presents a new body of work based on Frieburghaus’ recent visit to Iceland. Sea, ice, land, and sky are present in single channel video and sound, projection, 2D collage, and 3D printed objects.

2017 Solo Shows were selected by juror Susana Torruella Leval, Director Emerita El Museo del Barrio, Chair of the New York City Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission.
