I am...
a Berlin-based artist and director of the Land Art Biennial in Mongolia. He studied Philosophy and Fine Art in Munich and Berlin. In his artistic practice he uses a variety of media and materials and is interested in the openness of space.
Over the last decade Marc Schmitz has developed art projects internationally. On the occasion of the Busan Biennial (2004) he developed a walk-in sculpture that allowed for a new and unusual experience of space within a vibrant environment. Later Schmitz exhibited at the Beijing Biennale (2005), Ulaanbaatar Mongolia, and at the Sculpture Quadrennial Riga, Latvia (2008), the Zendai MoMA in Shanghai and Land/Art New Mexico U.S. In 2009 he exhibited in the Academy of Arts, Baku Azerbaijan and was the artist-in-residence at Yatoo in Korea, and in 2010 in Australia a solo exhibition at the Concert Hall of Perth. 2013 Marc Schmitz had a solo show at moproo in Shanghai and participated at the 55th Venice Biennial and Scupture by the Sea, Kunstmuseum Aros in Denmark.
He received support by institutions like ifa, the Goethe Institute, the Art Council Korea, and the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation. His work was awarded with the first prize for Art For Expo 2000 World Expo in Hanover, Germany, and with the special prize of the jury at the 10th Cairo Biennial and the Turgut Pura Art Prize at the Museum of Sculpture Izmir 2012, amongst others. His recent artistic activities have focused on art and politics at the Museo Leopold Rother, Bogotá 2012 and men & animal - issue of the upcoming Land Art Biennial in Mongolia 2014.
About my artwork
Any typical space is constructed by typical social conditions. Every part of consciousness is included. Images of space are dreams of society. My recent projects have focused on finding and interpreting unclaimed or contested public space(s), and on reading the importance of the spatial relationship to both personal and shared-cultural memory. The stories told in those bare spaces reveal alternate possibilities for the human experience – and particularly our experience of urban zones. My work is oriented toward the public realm, is collaborative and generative relies on ethnographic and art-historical research, and takes advantage of both contemporary and historical forms of artistic media.
