Matthias Bitzer, interia hysteria, 2020.


cosmic rational is Matthias Bitzer's first solo exhibition in Mexico. This show presents a constellation of painting, installation, and collage that reflects upon the complexity of finding one’s place in our rapidly accelerating, refracting present.

The main protagonist of the exhibition is the “happy Eddie,” a shape-shifting eel-like figure who —in Bitzer’s world— has the capacity to perpetually reconfigure, reconstruct, and camouflage itself by expanding, accordion-like, into the multimedia installation cosmic rational or compactly coiling itself into a luminous bull’s eye, as in his painting Eddie Spaghetti.

In parallel, Bitzer is also presenting works from his collage series entitled Phosphor Notes. Throughout his career, Bitzer has been interested in capturing experiences, memories and sensations, which has led him to form different groups of hypomnemas that capture the fleetingness of our times.
