Matthieu Bourel

In a wry play on words and in homage to his Dada artist heroes, Matthieu Bourel has coined the term “Data-ism” to describe his cinematic collage work. The France-born, Berlin-based artist creates a strange blend of classic Hollywood glamour and dystopian body horror through a mixture of hand-cutting techniques and digital manipulation, blurring (both physically and metaphorically) the lines between truthful historical representation and something a little more surreal, more dream-like. He revels in the power of combining unexpected visual signifiers and references to create striking new wholes, and delights in forming narratives that are at once strange and familiar.
