Artist: Max Hattler
Using the New Age idea of a ‘dimensional shift’ as inspiration, Shift combines science fiction themes through abstract, stop motion animation of objects and colour.
Max Hattler (b. 1976, Ulm/Germany) was educated in London at Goldsmiths and the Royal College of Art. His films, video installations and audiovisual performances challenge the tensions between abstraction and figuration, aesthetics and politics, sound and image, precision and improvisation. Hattler has had solo exhibitions and retrospectives at Schaustelle/Pinakothek der Moderne Munich, Playgrounds Festival, Lumen Eclipse, Image Forum Festival, Fredrikstad Animation Festival, Go Short Nijmegen, Media Art Friesland and others. He has performed live around the world, including the Museum of Image and Sound in Sao Paulo, the European Media Art Festival and SuperDeluxe Tokyo. Max Hattler lives in London where he’s a Doctorate in Fine Art candidate at University of East London, and teaches at Goldsmiths and University of the Arts London.
