Robert Seidel is a Berlin-based artist. His experimental practice includes abstract films, live performances, environmental laser drawings as well as projections expanding architecture, sculpture and nature. Seidel’s work has been shown in numerous international festivals as well as art institutions such as the Musée Beaux-Arts de Lyon, Art Center Nabi Seoul, Museum of Image and Sound São Paulo, ZKM Karlsruhe and MOCA Taipei. It has been honoured with various prizes, including the KunstFilmBiennale Cologne Honorary Award and the Visual Music Award Frankfurt.
In his work Seidel is interested in pushing the boundaries of abstracted beauty through cinematographic approaches, as well as ones drawn from science. By the organic interplay of various structural, spatial and temporal concepts, he creates a continuously evolving complexity. Out of this multifaceted perspective emerges a narrative skeleton, through which viewers connects to the artwork on an evolutionary-derived and phylogenetic-fixated symbolic level.
