Out of a pixelated blizzard, the corners of a room sink into view, and the shape of a sink emerges from the wall.


Noah Matteucci: random (8) opens at AGENDA November 13, 2021

Matteucci’s work explores overwhelming data and random noise that surrounds modern humanity. These images of a prior installation hint at the complexity to be expected at AGENDA.

Just as the river where I step
is not the same, and is,
so I am as I am not.

Portland, Oregon – 9/28/21 – AGENDA is pleased to announce its ninth exhibition, Noah Matteucci: random [8] from November 13, 2021 – December 12, 2021


For Matteucci, the process outweighs the outcome and the outcome is arbitrary. With every print there are a seemingly infinite number of possible arrangements, and the repetitive and absurd Sisyphean task of attempting to print all of them becomes an obsession. What results is visual overload that tends to make the viewer aware of the plethora of data that inundates daily modern life. The sheer volume of work within the diminutive space initially overwhelms the visitor but can be leaned into until awe gives way to calm. This painstaking and lengthy process of installation deserves an in-person pilgrimage as photo documentation cannot represent the experience of being enveloped in this organized chaos.

Noah Matteucci is a printmaker living and working in Vancouver, WA. During the day he works in the Fine Arts Department at WSU Vancouver and at night he makes prints in a little studio located in the bowels of his house — a space that many people would describe as a basement.
