artist collective

The artist collective MIST is focused on media installations as well as digital art since 2013. We take images and bring them to a contemporary audience within a sensitive dialog of art history. Our main motivation is to ‘breathe’ life and motion into static assets. We collaborate with museums, galleries and auction houses bringing our unique expertise in art tech and motion imagery. The inspiration for this project is the idea that artworks are not static objects, but rather a constant process of creation.

Consisting of the painter Andrew M. Mezvinsky and the media artist collective lichterloh (Christoph Schmid and Clemens Gürtler) they collaborated on several digital artworks and interactive installations. Their internationally recognised video installations are on permanent display at highly respected institutions such as the Dorotheum and the Jewish Museum in Vienna.

Andrew M. Mezvinsky

b. 1982, Philadelphia, US ~ Lives and works in Vienna and New York

Andrew Mezvinsky is an American artist working across animation, drawing, painting, performance, and installation. Central to Mezvinsky’s practice – which at present comprises textile-based paintings, video, artist books, set design, and works on paper – is a continuous engagement with the challenges inherent to the cultural and semiotic act of translation.
What is lost in that interstitial transit between what is expressed and what is perceived? What incommunicable stories lie hidden between the layers of compounded time that constitute how we see the present?
