Marko Marković is a visual artist who works in the field of sculpture. In his projects he creates an autonomous field of sculpture, thus commenting on non-artistic or social processes. His work comes from analytic observation of the historical legacy of sculpture and is based on the construction of its formal and linguistic systems, followed by the creation of fictional narratives based on pseudo-archeological and art-historical sources. His work aims to provoke the custom of inscribing “external”, interpretive layers into the field of art, in that way criticizing the patterns used to translate the art into the field of culture. Marković’s practice offers a starting point for building the relations between the art and public spheres, which would ignore existing models of signification and categorization.
