Matan Mittwoch

Israel / France

Matan Mittwoch born 1982, Tel Aviv. Lives and works in Tel Aviv and Paris.
Mittwoch investigates the ubiquitous technological tools and the control appliance that they induce. In an era when everything has turned “smart”, when technology is part of our daily life, the artist analyzes these tools to understand their impact on our bodies, our emotions, our attention and our relationships to each other. In Mittwoch’s works, the mechanical eye competes with the human eye in a perceptual experiment. The technological tools which surround us become striking catalyzers of forms often recalling the modern history of abstraction.
Matan Mittwoch had numerous solo exhibitions. Among others, he exhibited in Momenta Biennale de l’image (Montreal), Centre d’art de l’Onde (Vélizy-Villacoublay), Wizo Academy of Design and Education (Haifa), Dvir Gallery (Brussels), Untilthen Gallery (Paris), Dvir Gallery (Tel Aviv). He was part of various group exhibitions, including in West Den Haag, FRAC Normandie (Rouen), Helena Rubinstein Pavilion for Contemporary Art (Tel Aviv), Cneai Art Center (Pantin, France), Grundemark Nilsson Gallery (Berlin), The Kupferman Collection House Gallery (Lohamei Ha’ghetaot), Petach Tikva Museum of Art (Petach Tikva), Tel Hai Photography Museum, Genia Schreiber University Art Gallery (Tel Aviv). He was awarded the Gérard Lévy Prize of The Israel Museum in 2014-2015, the T.A Scholarship, Bezalel Academy Of Art And Design in 2013, and the Igal Ahouvi Art Collection Promising Artist Award in 2012.
