Mathias Poledna (born 1965 in Vienna) completed his studies at the University of Applied Arts and the University of Vienna. He has lived and worked in Los Angeles since 2000.
His work examines the interconnections between art and entertainment, modernity in architecture and design, the language of film, cinema and the process of image making in our culture. Often informed by extensive research, his projects of recent years have taken the form of minimal and highly evocative film installations that suggest a complex tension between their visceral attraction and concepts circulating around them.
