*NEW NATURALS*
Booth NP22

In their approach to transformed materials, constructed and deconstructed images, objects and bodies, the artists Iris Touliatou and Maximilian Arnold reflect on the contemporary status of nature and think anew the interplay between nature, culture and technology, the complex symbiotic relationships between humans and artefacts.
Maximilian Arnold’s canvases, constructed of multiple layering of printmaking, collage and paint are simultaneously familiar and strange.
The end product of these demanding and lengthy processes plays with the opposition between digital and analog, referring to the tension between the digitalization of images and the rules of classical painting.
Flatness versus depth, materiality versus illusion, the epic, strange and unknown versus the everyday, arbitrary and random; they show the aspects of the „tactile world“ being a pool for sensory and visual experience of everyday life. 
Iris Touliatou’s sculptures, wall works and installations combine various techniques and a wide array of organic and inorganic substances - from raw metals to refined vitamins, from blown glass to distilled objects and notes, from laser engraved rubber and thermo printed plastics, to scented emulsions and liquid solutions.
Pointing out the subtle distinctions between natural and artificial, original and copy, living and lifeless, Touliatou’s multimedia practice uses the transformative states of matter, as a metaphor for the enigmatic nature of existence, speculates on what materiality is and can be.

 
Maximillian Arnold was 1987 in Heidelberg, DE, and lives and works in Frankfurt am Main, DE. He attended AdBK Karlsruhe with Prof. Toon Verhoef, 2009-2013; Städelschule Frankfurt am Main with Prof. Willem de Rooij, 2013-2015.
