Matt Plezier is a self-taught visual artist whose work reflects upon issues of alienation, anonymity, (in)visibility and ways of constructing and disseminating narratives. It mirrors his own multi-cultural background and provides its viewer a different narrative in an unambiguous and sometimes confrontational form. Self-publishing through his imprint, MonoRhetorik, is a major part of his art practice. His process includes the experimentation with printing techniques, (sometimes appropriated) photography and collages. Recurring themes are: raving, punk/hardcore and queer cultures. He currently forms the art duo SMET with architect Setareh Noorani. They work on research projects involving architecture, spaces of appropriation and interventions in the public space.
