The work of Matthias Danberg has been created in a seclusion at the computer over months and sometimes years. It varies between cinematic short stories, philosophical essays or interactive sculptures and leads into allegorically charged scenarios in which art and contemporary history are interwoven with different narrative structures. His artistic practice forms a conceptually complex structure in the dualism between the artificial qualities of digital imagery and individual style and thus reflects the relationship of present technical possibilities with an over centuries grown art history.
Danbergs art explores dystopian science fiction scenarios in contrast to greek sculpture (Order, 2013-15), it combines industrial factories with religious figures (S.C.A., 2012) or follows two philosophers on their path to knowledge (Inner Salt, 2011).
Matthias Danberg lives and works in Düsseldorf, Germany.
