To Have and Have Not

TRADES (2013)

Inspired by the fall of Lehman Brothers, the commercial bank, as a consequence of the credit crisis, Mathieu Bernard-Reymond created graphic representations of the data from financial markets, including those from the final seven days when shares in Lehman Brothers were traded. TRADES reveals the intensity of the financial world, in which recurring patterns appear, caused by the algorithms which represent the largest proportion of financial decisions, today initiated by computer programmes. In addition Bernard-Reymond used historical tick by tick data – high-speed share trading oriented to producing a high volume of small profits.

TV (Switzerland, 2004-2007)

We often hear it said that the television is the idol of our times. We sit before it daily for hours, sometimes slavishly, sometimes in ecstasy. Thus there are countless religious connotations applied to the television. It often proclaims its own reality, it is a source of inspiration for many, and for others is the guiding light of their lives. The box in our living rooms symbolizes the influence of the whole medium on our daily lives, and on the world as a whole. In a city of his own creation Mathieu Bernard- Reymond has replaced all the windows by television screens. In doing so he emphasizes the omnipresence of the spiritual medium of our day: television.
