Faces [UN]bonded by Marcelo Monreal

Marcelo Monreal’s Surreal Collages Replace Our Insides With Beautiful Blooms

Marcelo Monreal is a Brazilian collage artist who cracks skulls in the most beautiful way possible. Digitally splitting parts of models and celebrities faces (Christopher Walken and Kate Moss are among them), he fuses beautiful blooms with the broken shapes.

Small, colorful flowers grow from behind eye sockets, in the place of noses, and out of mouths. This surreal series is called Faces [UN]bonded. In Monreal’s opinon, people don’t often tell us who they really are.

Instead, they keep parts of their real selves hidden. He opens them up with his collages and reveals the rare moments in which we see the beauty that’s behind their appearance.

Natalie Czech / Friederike Feldmann

Art | January 2, 2020

The double exhibition Natalie Czech / Friederike Feldmann brings together two artistic positions that deal specifically with pictorial and linguistic topics and question how meanings are created. The exhibition in the Maschinenhaus M2 at the KINDL - Centre for Contemporary Art brings selected series of the two artists’ works into a dialogical context. In her conceptual photographs, Natalie Czech develops new meanings in the aesthetic interweaving of different levels of text and image. The artist examines the interaction between linguistic and visual information and uncovers poetic potential. In the series Poems by Repetition (since 2017), Czech doubles or multiplies photographed objects and rearranges them, in some cases divided into individual segments. By repeating relevant parts of sentences and words, highlighting them in colour, or covering unimportant elements, she reveals minimalist poems-for example, in the lyrics of Beatles songs.
