On the following Friday, NEXTCOMIC festival in Linz presents a comics exhibition by Max Andersson in the presence of the artist, plus a special screening of TITO ON ICE in conjunction with the opening. On Sunday 23 March, Max will sign his comics BOSNIAN FLAT DOG and CONTAINER from 13.00 – 14.00 at the Ursulinensaal, OÖ Kulturquartier.
The unconventional and radical approach of TITO ON ICE to history, journalism and documentary filmmaking demanded the creation of an entire world made up of discarded fragments and waste products – little shreds of “reality”, collected and meticulously pieced together again to form a new kind of realism. Designed and created by Max Andersson with contributions by fellow artists Lars Sjunnesson and Gunnar Lundkvist, the sets mix present, past and future locations – geographical as well as psychological – mirrored through several layers of subjectivity. Some of these landscapes and interiors were displayed at exhibitions in Ljubljana and Berlin (where the pictures above were taken).
Until 15 September, a large part of the miniature buildings, vehicles and characters designed by Max Andersson (in part together with Lars Sjunnesson) from recycled materials for the TITO ON ICE movie sets will be on display in Berlin.
For the event, Max Andersson has created a temporary site-specific installation within the construction “Mobile House” by Japanese architect and artist Kyohei Sakaguchi.
