Video: Matt’s Long Take #5: Christian Niccoli

Christian Niccoli is an Italian-born, Berlin-based artist who works across many sectors of the visual arts. I met him at his studio in the German capital for a chat and conversation over his works and working methods. Besides that, this interesting chat reminded me of one thing in particular: art-making is not only a dynamic process of evolution but also a lifetime commitment that very often also involves hard work and sacrifice.

Matt’s Long Take is a new web series by art reporter Matt Micucci documenting a series of encounters with artists and art institutions around the world. The use of the long take is inspired by André Bazin, who believed it to be an important tool in cinema’s ability to capture “reality.”
