Charles Matton recreations – Box a Room

[April 27 – May 25, 2012 ]

On the occasion of the Gallery Weekend in Berlin, the Galerie Michael Haas will open its exhibition with works, or rather boxes, by Charles Matton. The boxes seduce the viewer into an idiosyncratic, imaginary and to some extent very bizarre world

”Born in 1933, the son of a gambling addict who spent his life trying to defeat zero at roulette, his childhood saw a mixture of poverty and luxury, living first in Paris and then Monte Carlo, where his father took over the management of the Hotel Excelsior.

Matton exhibited in his native Paris in the early 60’s before turning to magazine illustration and book publishing. He continued to create art for himself and a small circle of collectors while he worked in New York alongside Jean-Paul Goude to oversee the design of Esquire magazine. He reemerged as an artist in 1983. Although Charles Matton began his career as a painter, he also worked as a draftsman, sculptor, photographer, filmmaker and writer – something that is evident in the way all these creative processes are merged in his later work.”–Anna Bang

Sun Explosions ~ Shoot it Live

The previous days, after being a spacial part of one of the largest sun explosions of the decade, scientists around the world gathered to start a game predicting shows of  northern lights.( much the same as predicting the weather)



Halloween Storms 2003


Jan. 22, 2012 — Over the weekend, the Earth’s magnetic field was struck by a coronal mass ejection (CME). The CME — a vast bubble of solar plasma that had erupted from the sun on Jan. 19 — took longer than expected to travel through interplanetary space, but on Sunday it made contact.

Jan. 23, 2012 — Serious sun explosions, the most powerful kind(X-flare),  focussed everyones attention leading to really big bets.

Jan. 24, 2012 —The promised aurora came at last, and hit Earth magnetic field.. creating some of the most beautiful auroras ever captured! [exact time of hit was a bit unexpected..10 min difference to the expected.. big payouts avoided]

Northern lights travel over the sky with more than 500 miles per second. It lights up everything around us, and all snow was completely green. Fantastic night.

Jan. 25, 2012 —

-33 degrees celsius, lots of snow on the trees and great auroras. Can a night become better? The first show around 8 pm was great. Then nothing and nothing, just cold feets. But suddendly around 11 pm there was a second even larger show of dancing auroras. It became a late night…

Keeping on.. we may be protected from sun radiation due to our magnetic field.. but Mars has an atmosphere 100-times thinner than Earth’s and doesn’t possess a global magnetic field. When the CME hits Mars, it will experience an increase in radiation on the surface and may even have some of its atmosphere removed completely!
