Tique | art paper asks six questions to an artist about their work and inspiration.
This week: Moritz Frei.
Lives in Berlin, Germany
How do you describe your own art practice?
The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what you share with someone else when you’re uncool. Here I am, I’m a student. Not just in an academic sense, but a student of life.
What was your first experience with art?
The first time I saw a movie at the Cinematheque Francaise. I don’t remember much of those early years, but I do remember the rain.
What is your greatest source of inspiration?
An interesting question. Whatever it is that is being seen it is undoubtedly something.
What do you need in order to create your work?
Eggs, water balloons and a dozen rolls of toilet paper. Sometimes food is like time travel. You inhale an aroma, take a bite of something, and suddenly, bam, you’re back at the moment.
What are you working on at the moment?
When the world finds out what you can do it’s gonna change everything. Our beliefs, our notions of what it means to be human. Everything.
