Anteclimactic

Joint exhibition by Netai Halup and Mattias Kauderer

Pujo Studio, Barcelona, 2018

I met Matthias Kauderer in Barcelona over the summer of 2017, The similarity in our artistic processes and our related passion for sculptures brought me to invite him for a one month residency in Pujo Studio. He responded to my invitation with positivity, and we found ourselves working alongside one-another during October 2018.

We have produced In the studio a critical space for debates and discussions, and therefore invited local artists and curators to take part in these events. During this time we have traveled to the volcanic mountain in Olot and collected materials such as rocks and wood. Back in the city we worked (almost always) in the same space, but each one was focusing on producing his own encounters, with his own materials; Matthias with ready-mades, and me, with industrial material such as cement and manufactured wood.

Anteclimatic is the result of this natural and industrial encounters, when the sculptures performs through an Ante-Climactic behavior.
