The systematization, structure and order of Matt Mullican's personal vision of the world, ranges from the personal to the universal, and are central themes in his production. His works do not function as isolated pieces; his understanding is based on the relationships established between them, within his whole body of work. Relationships established through language and signs, through repetition, rhythm and association. All his works form a continuous semantic unit.

Since the late 70s, the performances made under hypnosis have played a key role in his work. They have been the basis for, as the artist himself has stated repeatedly “enter the picture” see the world or an “image” of it, exploring the border between fiction and reality, a way of stating the relationship between the subjective and the objective and an essential tool for the development of all its production.
For his fourth exhibition in ProjecteSD, Mullican presents his new work The Meaning of Things, an installation of more than 600 collages on paper that the artist has developed over the last five years.
Through a file of digital images of movies, video games, sports and multiple situations of violence, sex and empathy that the artist has been gathering in an intuitive and automatic way, he builds a repertoire where his encyclopedic, visual and graphic universe unfolds inexhaustibly.
