Into the cellar of the post-archeology, we follow the stalker’s steps into past and future memories. In this shelter-atmosphere, an environment for dreamlike spatiotemporal experience unfolds by the glow of a flashlight. The psychedelic ‘meta-collage’ draws from prehistoric evidence, recent events as well as prophecies about what is yet to come, triggering associative leaps of a holistic worldview.

For HIT Gallery, Mark Fridvalszki creates an in situ room filling collage, using appropriated motives that can be explored individually and are emphasized by a corresponding soundscape. Saint Leidal The 2nd composed the latter after Eduard Artemyev’s Stalker (1979).

Mark Fridvalszki (*1981, Budapest) lives and works in Leipzig. He graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna (class: G. Damisch) 2011, since 2014 he is a post-graduate student at the HGB Academy of Visual Art in Leipzig. Currently he is a resident at Meetfactory Prague.
An important feature of his work is a post-digital approach, which can be traced throughout his collages and installations, as well as the visual language of the fanzine Technologie und das Unheimliche. +++
