Press release

Moe Matsuhashi

Capitain Petzel is pleased to announce an exhibition by Berlin based artist Moe Matsuhashi in the lower exhibition space. The show features recent paintings and two sculptures. 

Serving as the main source for the paintings are the artist’s photographs capturing children’s scenes from an adult perspective in both urban and natural landscapes. In her images, a naive iconography meets uncanny details that alter the syntax of the original photographic compositions. The children’s faces are obliterated; there are no signs of gender or identity. This anonymity is grounded in Matsuhashi’s interest in depicting childhood—rather than specific children—as a state of being that, according to her, shares similarities with her artistic practice.
