Open Doors Day / Spaces of Excessivity / Conversation with Marko Marković
On this day artist Marko Marković will tell you everything about the exhibition and his works.
Curator: Žaklina Ratković
The exhibition “Spaces of Excessivity” presents authors who deal in their artistic practice in a specific way with the notion of space. With different approaches, the artists Ana Knežević, Nemanja Lađić and Marko Marković problematize the reception of space, its structure, homogeneity and plans.
Each work of Marko Marković is a complex whole, composed out of several elements that make an integral entity. The artist builds a fictional story around the chosen object with a certain dramaturgical moment. He begins his work with a sculpture or an object as a three-dimensional form, one of the segments is a video animation in which we see the genesis, then the drawing that is not realized on paper, but is only one of the fields of this artistic archaeology, and it also includes a text as a subsequently added element connected to the theme. In the work Gradac (2015) an element of historical memory is visibly present, and it is very important for the author to delete the meanings that are not inherent for this construction. Marko Marković also emphasises the need to depersonalize that which he creates, feeling that the work should have its own life, independent from the artist.
Marko Marković (Belgrade, 1984) Studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade in
class of Mrđan Bajić. He engages in
media of sculpture and drawing. Had several independent exhibitions, among others, at the
Cultural City Network in Graz in 2009 at the Kulturfestival serbi.arte in
Austria, and he is also a participant of numerous group exhibitions. He is a
winner of several awards and recognitions, among which is the prize for drawing
of the “Vladimir Veličković” Fund in 2008.
