Matthew Lutz-Kinoy

"Matthew places himself at the centre of the work. He features directly in a large proportion of the pieces from where he is able to manipulate and direct the action, and undermine his own role as artist within the production of artworks. Matthew’s works explore language; written, spoken, of objects, of colours, of preconceptions, and through all of these he manages to reclaim them not as meaningful or absolute but as exposed, isolated and intriguing" (Charles Danby, London 2007).

Born in 1984 in Brooklyn, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy is inspired by everyday objects and pop culture. Yet his imagination brings the viewers well beyond, into the sensation of timelessness, the whirlwind of tenderness.

The recent exhibitions and in-site performances/video projections includes: USA (New Museum NY, Grand Arts KC, Brucennial10 NY, X-Initiative NY, Socrates Sculpture Park NY), UK (Hayward Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery London, Urbis Center Manchester), and throughout Europe (Kunstverein Amsterdam, Kolnishcer Kunstverein Cologne, French Institut of Berlin, Silberkuppe Berlin). He is graduated from Cooper Union in NY, and currently is a resident at Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.
