Marko Marković | Who is Marko Marković? & Lala Nomada | Diluidos
Identity construction is an integral component of the human species. Identity is the way we perceive and express ourselves. galerie michaela stock presents the serial work of two young performance artists who explore precisely that — but in different ways.
Marko Marković who is a conceptual performance artist from Croatia develops the concept of “performative authorship”. This exhibition Who is Marko Marković? is about identity theft and he takes appropriation / authorship to a new extreme. Marković has not only created an artwork, he has stolen the identity of another person.
In her exhibition Diluidos the mexican artist Lala Nomada thematizes experiences of the human body and recollects memories of its former presence as a proof of life. Diluidos can directly translated as “diluted” in German, “verdünnt“ and for the artist its has another colloquial layer as “dissolve”. Such a “dissolution” is exactly what happens when the artist's body comes into contact with the coal.
