Marie Matusz’ practice is the result of a critical engagement with forms and their inherent meanings. It evolves through in-depth research into a variety of philosophical, sociological and linguistic theories. Her work manifests concepts from these areas through minimal sculptural installations, sound works, writing and film. Matusz uses the pre-existing architecture of a space to literally suspend the sculptures from the floor, walls or ceiling, seemingly imprisoning the object while the viewer moves freely around it. This suspension goes beyond the physical as it seeks to activate a suspension of time and recognises an absence in space. Her work plays with this moment of idleness by juxtaposing objects from various historical archives taken from our contemporary lexicon and presenting them in a pseudo-futuristic framework.
