About Matt Saunders
Matt Saunders was born in 1975 in Tacoma (Washington, US). He currently lives and works in Berlin (Germany), New York (US) and Boston (US).
In the five large-scale prints of his new series Ratlos / Indomitable, Matt Saunders works with portraits of the fictional movie character Leni Peickert, who appears in two films by German director Alexander Kluge. The character offers a reflection on a historical moment of feminism. Saunders uses a visual doubling, a hand-drawn overlapping of frames rendered in soap ground, to visualize the character’s inner state. The instability of the ground and time-based action of the acid led to images that are, in one way, stable combinations of multiple frames and in another way irreconcilable, suspended in flux.
Matt Saunders is represented by Martin Asbæk Gallery and Niels Borch Jensen Gallery & Editions.
