Marc Schmitz Artist Bio:

Any typical space is constructed by typical social conditions. Every part of consciousness is included. Images of space are dreams of society. “My recent projects have focused on finding and interpreting unclaimed or contested public space(s), and on reading the importance of the spatial relationship to both personal and sharedcultural memory. The stories told in those contested spaces reveal alternate possibilities for the human experience – and particularly our experience of urban zones. My work is oriented toward the public realm, is collaborative more than it is ‘interactive,’ relies on ethnographic and arthistorical research, and takes advantage of both contemporary and historical forms of artistic media.” THE ARTIST Marc Schmitz is a Berlin based artist and initiator of Land Art MongoliaLAM 360° Biennial in Mongolia. He studied Philosophy and Fine Art in Munich and Berlin. In his artistic practice he’s mostly interested in the openness of space while he uses a variety of media and materials. Over the last decade Marc Schmitz has developed art projects internationally. On the occasion of the Busan Biennial (2004) he developed a walkin sculpture that allowed for a new and unusual experience of space within a vibrant environment. Later Schmitz exhibited at the Beijing Biennial (2005), in Ulaanbaatar Mongolia, and at the Sculpture Quadrennial Riga, Latvia (2008), the Zendai MoMA in Shanghai and Land/Art New Mexico U.S. In 2009 he exhibited in the Academy of Arts, Baku Azerbaijan and was the artistinresidence at Yatoo in Korea, and in 2010 in Australia at the Concert Hall of Perth. He received support by institutions as the ifa, the Goethe Institute, the Art Council Korea, and the Konrad Adenauer Foundation a.o.. He was awarded with the first prize for Art For Expo 2000 WorldExpo in the German House in N.Y., with the special prize of the jury at the 10th Cairo Biennial, and the Turgut Pura Art Prize at the Museum of Sculpture in Izmir 2012, amongst others.
