“I am interested in the area where bodies and identity meet. And I am inspired by people who see their body as a kind of speculative material, a tool and process of being and ‘becoming’, which I can use as material to deconstruct and rearrange.”  

Mathias Vef was born in Germany and works in Berlin and London after having studied at the Royal College of Arts in the class of Noam Toran and Anthony Dunne.

His work was EXHIBITED in shows in London, Berlin,
New York, Sydney and Kulala Lumpur.
