SHIFT is Max Hattler's first solo show in London. By transforming the lower gallery into his cinematic interpretation of an apocalyptic shift, this new work approaches the viewer with both uncanny relevance and visual transcendence. As we face a transition from a comfortable four-dimensional existence through to a fifth dimension, the animations in SHIFT combine science-fiction themes through colour, movement and shape. This exhibition will premiere the work completed by Hattler through his Animate Projects commission for Channel 4's Random Acts.
Max Hattler, experimental animator and media artist, was educated at Goldsmiths College, Escuela de Cine de Madrid, and the Royal College of Art, graduating with an MA (RCA) in Animation in 2005. He has had solo exhibitions at Lumen Eclipse, Media Art Friesland, Nottingham Broadway and Someonesgarden Tokyo, and retrospectives at Image Forum Festival, Fredrikstad Animation Festival, MUMIA Festival and Branchage Jersey Film Festival. His works have been shown at hundreds of film festivals, as well as in museums and galleries such as MOCA Taipei, the Marl Video Art Award, Yota Space and Gasworks Gallery. Max teaches at Goldsmiths, and is studying towards a Professional Doctorate in Fine Art (DFA) at the University of East London.
