#3 – Mart Avi
Mart Avi will project a “graphical ocean” to a zone onto the gallery floor and fill it with data and matter that has surged through him throughout the years. The problem with introspection is that it has no end, but at times, one can detect its quasi-periodic currents and tides, which may form various knots in certain places. Allegorical photocopies, imprints, implants, linked by eel-like circuits and medusoid microchips will float around in a semi-neutral space, soundtracked using found and imagined sounds.

It’s the Avi’s aqueous intranet re-envisaged in a material 4D form – round and round it goes, and where it ends nobody knows.

Mart Avi
A true child of post-genre, the Estonian soul singer and producer Mart Avi hooks up neo-glam aesthetics with unmapped sound territories for an age yet to come, playing around with his persona, real, imagined, on or offline. His works are numerous; concerned with surveilance, arcana, and finding a a new path between sound sand vision. Best known to date for his musical output, Avi is increasingly concerned with transforming a meta- broadsheet fanzine into a Google implant.

Face to Face#3 – Mart Avi

Mart Avi uit Estland zal op de vloer van de S/ash zijn verleden projecteren. Denk aan data. Denk aan spullen. Denk aan gebeurtenissen, denk aan incidenten, denk aan constanten en denk aan de onderstroom in het leven en werk van een kunstenaar. Van fotokopietje tot microchip, van data tot drukwerk, begeleid door geluid.

Over Mart Avi

Mart Avi staat bekend als muzikant, zanger en producer die steeds vaker buiten de kaders van de muziek zelf werkt. Avi combineert de esthetiek van hedendaagse glam met geluidskunst, waarbij het spel met zijn persoonlijkheid -echt, online, offline of denkbeeldig- centraal staat: Mart Avi is de belichaming van sound & vision in de 21e eeuw.
