Maya Rochat‘s exhibition “Too Much Metal for One Hand” is currently on view at Espace Quai1 in Vevey, Switzerland. Born in 1985, Rochat is a Swiss/German artist who is known for having a very specific style that mixes photography, collage, performance, and installation. The photographs she uses to create her works are distorted, teared up, disintegrated, and reconstructed. She often paints or draws on them, to add her own, personal touch. At a time when everybody is bombarded by digital images on smartphones or screens, she is mostly focused on the matter, structure, and tactile nature of her images.
Her work is disturbing, seductive, fantastic and brings to the viewer’s mind some recollection of heavy metal or rock’n’roll. She brings us into her own world between fiction and reality where one gets the chance to invent its own narration.
“Too Much Metal for One Hand” is on view through April 23.
