MATT SAUNDERS: PEOPLE ON SUNDAY

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MATT SAUNDERS

People on Sunday

May 9 – June 19, 2010

Opening Reception: Sunday, May 9, 5 - 7 pm

Harris Lieberman is pleased to announce People on Sunday, an exhibition by Berlin-based artist Matt Saunders. Saunders will exhibit a selection of new works related to his recent show at the Renaissance Society in Chicago. As he continues to build a private canon of interwoven images from film and historical sources, the artist has expanded and deepened his border- crossing materiality, walking a line between still and moving image, between photographic and painted pictures.

Central to the exhibition is a new three-channel video work, Passageworks. Animated fragments from a diverse list of sources are linked together in flickering, associative groupings.

Photographs here are ersatz paintings. Made without a camera, directly from painted “negatives” (which, in turn, consist of materials such as ink on mylar or oil on stretched linen), these pictures are infused with both immediacy and mediated distance. They are portraits not just of their subjects, but of materials and their own making.

Matt Saunders recently had his first solo museum exhibition at the Renaissance Society, Chicago. His work has been featured in group exhibitions at the Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the University of Michigan Museum of Art. He received his MFA from Yale University in 2002.
