Residency Nicolas Matzner Weisner
Nicolás is an architect and mind-reader from Santiago, Chile. The constructions he develops are based on kinetic art, and are materialized through psychokinetic forces.
In 2012 he started a video project called “La Ruta del Trompe”, a hyperactive traveler/road movie that shows the ‘other’ side of different cities around the world through the point of view of local artists and their pieces.
Some chapters (available on youtube) of this video diary tell the inside story of the Pollinators trip that nadine organized for the European project Resilients in July 2012. Nicolás was part of the bikers and some of his video material of the road he processed into his Ruta del Trompe.
During his residency in Plateau Nicolás is working on the documentary video of Hotel Resilients, an event that took place Brussels and presented the main case studies and activities developed by the Resilients.
The artistic video-work of Nicolas relates to this commission as it explores the “behind the scenes” of artists montages (or disassembly’s). All his video works are also part of the bigger framework 'La Ruta del Trompe', that presents a fictional reality with a strong commitment never to show things as they actually happened.
