MICHEL POU (Artist in Residence MQ)
from utopia to here
Michel Pou will talk about his work: From utopia to the deconstruction of utopia; dystopia, the generational meeting; the global here and now. The here is everywhere, the ephemeral now; rediscovering and the difficult return to the dream. A double journey between creation and life.
Michel Pou Díaz, born in Havana, Cuba in 1971, is a self-taught artist and photographer. His interest in humanity (people) has led him to explore the relations between humankind and nature mainly through portraits and landscapes, looking for a favorable relationship for a development based on quality and sustainability more than quantity and exploitation. His works have been exhibited both in Cuba and internationally at the Habana Biennale, the Center for the Development of the Arts in Havana, the Pingyao International PhotoFestival in China, ola cuba! in France.
In May 2023 Michel Pou will come to Vienna for a residency at MQ Vienna and he will have an exhibition at SCHAURAUM of the University of Applied Arts Vienna at Museumsquartier Wien.
