Matt Mahdavi: Oops, Something Went Wrong
Time Out says
British artist Matt Mahdavi is concluding his guest residency at 3331 Arts Chiyoda with this two-week exhibition featuring large-size prints of manipulated photos created during his stay in Tokyo. As Mahdavi tells us, 'the universe is an endless, chaotic Fibonacci sequence like subways and metros under roads and streets, cables above and caverns below.' This perspective leads him to observe that 'living in a chaotic city stacked like this...it's easy to forget what you are. 'You can look up at something into infinity and look down through something into infinity just to come out the other side – the universe is ins and outs. Zoom out, find ourselves to be inside a curb in a road, trapped in relativity.' Find out what all that means from January 6, and make sure to also play with 'Terminal' – the artist's interactive installation which is based on his research into simulation theory – when visiting room B108 of the former junior high school.
