Matias Faldbakken
Norwegian, b. 1973
Follow

In his film, sculpture, installation, photography, and wall paintings, Mattias Faldbakken uses traditional acts of vandalism and its materials—such as paint, markers, tape, and fire extinguisher foam—to generate aesthetic forms. In his well-known tape works, black tape is applied on canvas or directly onto walls, referencing both postmodern abstraction and graffiti culture, with letter-like shapes that recall tags. In his garbage bag series, he scrawls incoherent acronyms and drawings in black marker on dark plastic trash bags. Carefully framed and arranged on gallery walls, the bags suggest both Minimalist seriality and chaos.
