About the artist

Matias Faldbakken

Matias Faldbakken is a writer and visual artist born 1973 in Denmark. His practice is highly conceptual with gestures of vandalism, appropriation, and poetry. While his writing is characterized as easily accessible, his art is characterized as obscure and somewhat reductionist. Faldbakken works in a variety of mediums such as sculpture, drawing, video, and collage, while incorporating banal materials, like garbage bags or flattened cardboard boxes as the ground for abstract or minimal gestures. All forms of his work offer social critique on themes like artistic freedom, freedom of speech, and the ideology of white cube space.  

Faldbakken lives and works in Norway and represented Norway at the 2005 Venice Biennale. HIs work has been shown globally in both solo and group exhibitions. In regards to his writing, he is best known for his trilogy, Scandinavian Misanthropy, under the pseudonym Abo Rasul.
