PARIS.- Early renowned and acclaimed by critics, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy has been reflecting – for more than ten years – upon cultural traditions and the techniques of representation that shaped them. Through ceramics works, painting or drawing, the artist goes back to the origins of thousand-year-old practices in order to explore the concept of cycle and repetitions that pace the living. It is in this sense that he summons ancestral ordinary objects as well as gestures related to craftsmanship to disclose the necessary commitment of bodies, and the performative aspect of what makes culture. The title of the exhibition “Plate Is Bed, Plate is Sun, Plate is Circle, Plate is Cycle”, revisits – like a mantra – the intricate ties between the spiritual and the domestic, the mundane and the eternal, life and death, symbolized by the infinite circular form of the plate.

“This show is a kind of a love story of an artistic collaboration. One of the starting points is a historical collaboration between Bernard Leach and Hamada Shōji who were two ceramicists.” 

Matthew Lutz-Kinoy was born in 1984 in New York.

He often works on large formats paintings depicting animals, plants, or human figures. His works are often presented as tapestries, wall panels or suspended ceilings. He uses various mediums such as sculpture, ceramics and painting.

Holder of a BFA from the Cooper Union School of Art in New York (2007), he did a residence at the Riksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam (2010-2011). His most recent solo shows include “Soap Bubbles”, Art Basel Parcours (2022), “Window to the Clouds”, Museum Frieder Burda | Salon Berlin (2021); “Sea Spray”, Vleeshal, Middlelburg (2018) ; “The Meadow”, Le Centre d’édition Contemporaine, Geneva (2018); “Southern Garden of the Château Bellevue”, Le Consortium, Dijon (2018).

Additionally, his works have also been recently featured in group shows such as “The Flames – The Age of Ceramic”, Musée d’Art Moderne de Paris (2021); Geneva Sculpture Biennial (2020); “Sharjah Biennial 14: Leaving the Echo Chamber with Isabel Lewis“ (2019); “Eckhaus Latta: Possessed”, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2018); “Welt ohne Außen. Immersive Spaces since the 1960s”, Berliner Festpiele (2018). He currently lives and works in Paris.
