In his video-works Lukas Marxt deals with different temporalities, peripheries and with artistic-contemplative observation. During his journeys Marxt looks for traces in the landscapes or inscribes traces into the landscapes himself. His discoveries are transferred into a cinematic language. Marxt is currently in Southern California as part of six month residency, supported by Stiftung Kunstfonds, Kunststiftung NRW, and the Ministerium für Familie, Kinder, Jugend, Kultur und Sport des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen, where he is researching the ecological and socio-political structures surrounding the Salton Sea.

About HIGH TIDE (2013)
Alejandro Bachmann wrote about the work “High Tide“: “The unfathomable, gloomy elegance of this splashing and rumbling landscape painting — the movement of the waves, the circling of the birds, the lifting of the cloud cover — is followed by an arc shot resembling a brushstroke that tells us about everything we have already forgotten while gazing at the static and precisely framed mountain: the world beyond the image.”
