Matti Braun's work investigates the unexpected, often little known effects of cross-cultural dynamics, making visible patterns of artistic migrations and cultural misrecognitions. The artist's exhibitions have often been organised around a specific example of such appropriation, taking for instance an elaborate web of interdisciplinary associations spun around the Indian physicist Vikran Sarabhai that include Mahatma Gandhi, Le Corbusier, the development of the Indian space program, the Ulm School of Design and Lynda Benglis as point of departure for displays that included textile works, objects, photographs and large-scale installations. Matti Braun's work is characterised by a constant negotiation between concrete references and general allusions, between poetic ephemerality and an uncanny sense of visceral immediacy.
