conducted by maxence grugier

Maxence Grugier talks with Frieder Nagel and Maotik about how their collaboration on The Arrival came about especially for Multiplica, how the pandemic had quite an influence on their show and what role nature plays in their artistic approaches. 


“Mixing genres is something of the past. The future of this kind of projects is to leave the categories behind and create something new based on the acquired experience.”

Frieder Nagel


“In the end I’m also surprised by how my system reacts. It becomes this kind of audiovisual sculpture that is shaped by sound. Somehow it adds a human feeling to the technology.”
