About

Objkt is thrilled to announce the exhibition Matter & Data at the Digital Art Mile, an innovative digital art fair taking place alongside Art Basel.

Matter & Data proposes artists and artworks that explore the tension between the immateriality of the digital and the embodiment or physicality of matter – breaking stereotypes around digital art and, more specifically, NFTs.

This exhibition showcases the works of 17 artists from various generations and parts of the world, working with different types of media, such as interactive installations, code-based works, 3D animations, AI-assisted photography, plotter drawing, 3D printed sculpture, 3D portraits on holographic screens, digital and physical paintings.

With Analivia Cordeiro, the inventor of cybernetic choreography, objkt brings one of the most significant pioneers of digital art to Basel. She will present an interactive installation, powered by objkt, where visitors can transform their movement patterns into generative NFTs on the Tezos blockchain.

Regina Silveira, one of the most significant names in Brazil's visual arts scene, adapts one of her works from the 1980s into animated semi-abstract landscapes. Silveira is presented in collaboration with Luciana Brito Gallery and Labirinto.

Celebrated generative artists Zancan, Qubibi, and Leander Herzog continue their well-known series with new pieces, while Marcel Schwittlick presents one of his striking drawings made with a vintage plotter and ballpoint pens. The Swiss-based artist Addie Wagenknecht introduces a new painting series, an exploration of the intersection between financial data, computational techniques, and abstract painting.

The provocative anonymous performance artist OONA presents a new installation that queries beauty, consent, intimacy, and privacy.

Other highlights include a new piece by LA-based artist ThankYouX, known for his physical/digital hybrid paintings; a mesmerizing 3D printed sculpture revisiting the myth of mermaids by Monica Piloni, accompanied by a video featuring the same creature; and astounding works from prominent interdisciplinary artists Auriea Harvey, Lovid, and Sara Ludy. The latter, in collaboration with the German gallery OFFICE IMPART.

Finally, the exhibition introduces the works of 3 extraordinary emerging artists, Rodell Warner, Salawaki and Viola Rama, who use technology to comment on our collective cultural inheritance, internet culture and contemporary society.
