Dejan Marković

Shapes of Things Before My Eyes

27.01.-04.03.2018


Opening: 26.01.2018, 7pm
Venue: studio

With ‘Shapes of Things Before My Eyes’ Dejan Marković developed a four-channel video which in its conception involved experts from the TU Graz as well as the Universalmuseum Joanneum/Natural History Museum. Different levels of the construction of reality arise, in the museum as well as in terms of the technological development up to the digital aspect, throwing up ever more fundamental issues. Can human beings still control what their achievements, only just invented, are able to carry out? Markovic’s project condenses seemingly contrary conceptions of the production and management of knowledge.  Storage depots and museum workshops, in which taxidermists work on the preparation of models of the natural, were observed by Markovic’s self-propelled camera-robots which, in interaction with traditional museum practices, do not only suggest a science-fiction scenario.

About "studio"

From 1992 to 2010, the studio of the Neue Galerie Graz served as a platform for young Austrian artists at the outset of their career. In 2017 this key instrument for the promotion and presentation of recent art in the Joanneum Quarter was re-introduced.
