▶ Play Interview

“Photomat Rendevouz”, a series of on-site interviews leaded by Berlin-based artist Leen Horsford with residents of AFFECT Module I.
Horsford’s artistic research practice unfolds in conversational games with the aim to reveal the tastes, aspirations and personalities of the player through words and exchanges, rather than through artwork. In “Photomat Rendevouz” the British artist portrays the resident’s personal views on The Social framed under a Photo booth in the Berliner Warschauer Brücke.

Michael is a mixed media artist with a focus on photomontage. He exhibits regularly in group exhibitions and his work recently featured at The Convent Gallery Daylesford Victoria one of Australia’s most successful private galleries.

His work questions inequalities based on gender and race, and religious oppression of gay people. As well as exploration of the male form through life drawing, found image, video and text, his body of work includes formalist, still life, urban seaside and rural landscapes, religious, emotional and spiritual art, site specific installations social change and community engagement through art.
