Florent Bex on Gordon Matta-Clark

download

Gordon Matta-Clark was a North American artist of Chilean descent who explored various forms of architectural intervention.

Trained as an architect, he is famous for his “building cuts” dating from the seventies.Matta-Clark used his work to try to open a breach in the capitalist system by questioning concepts such as private property, speculation, privacy, poverty, neglect and isolation.

In 2011, art collector Harold Berg acquired the photographic archive on the work of Matta-Clark from Florent Bex, director of the Internacional Cultureel Centrum in Antwerp, and deposited it indefinitely with the MACBA Foundation. With the incorporation of the 46 works from Berg’s LATA Collection, the MACBA Collection now has a total of 74 works by Matta-Clark.

SON[I]A talks to Florent Bex about Matta-Clark’s working process, the context in which they met and how the footage, photographs and drawings that he originally made as documentation have ended up becoming his body of work.

Domènec

Domènec talks about his working and documentation processes – what he calls “bastard research”, always straddling art, anthropology, sociology, history, journalism, and activism. He also reflects on the nature of the spaces of art as public spaces, and gives a detailed account of some of his most notable works.
