Michael Stevenson (b. 1964) is a New Zealand born artist who lives in Berlin. He has become known for his large-scale installations yet his work also encompasses filmmaking, photography, printmaking, writing and publishing. His practice is based in research that more often begins by reviewing historical events; via auxiliary objects these histories are converted and re-told in a form that assumes the exemplary. Underlying this process is simply the need to visualize our complex relationship with things.
His projects have been exhibited at Portikus, Frankfurt am Main; Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; Witte de With, Rotterdam; The Power Plant, Toronto; Arnolfini, Bristol; CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco; Tate Modern, London: 50th Venice Biennale; Art Unlimited, Art Basel 38; and Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach.
In this talk the artist will discuss the current Portikus exhibition and its development via and through earlier projects
