MATHIAS RINGGENBERGPRINT THIS PAGE
Mathias Ringgenberg (born 1986 in Rio de Janeiro) finished 2015 the master theater & performing arts at the College of the arts Bern in Switzerland.
In his current performative works called, “Can not say much about anything that’s new” and the associated debut album “Greatest Hits” or its Video Perfromances “A: I am impressed B: Well - I am in love” or “Home is a place we all have to find”, Mathias developed the fictional character PRICE.
In this project he investigated mechanisms of mainstream pop while attempting the potential of musical and performative formats to explore. The forms of his work are mutating through their showrooms or clubs and can be experienced always differently.
His works are musical and performative situations which deal with the topics of ‘love’, ‘faith’, ‘desire’ and ‘sex’. He uses the language of pop culture, which embodies the language of folk culture, the masses, society and globalisation. This aesthetic he brings in connection with sociological issues such as the issue of transparen- cy society of self-expression urge, the language as the house of being and how PRICE would say his homeless Generation Y.
His performances have been shown at the Kunsthalle Bern, Lausanne Arsenic Theatre within the Les Urbaines festival, Schwarzwaldallee project space within the Art Basel, UPSTATE galerie Zurich, Dampzentrale Bern, Local Int. Biel/ Bienne, Stadtgalerie Bern, Voolksroom Brussels, Gessnerallee Zurich, 8.Salon Hamburg, Bar 3000 Zurich, Karma International or at the Helmhaus Zurich.
