Mark Formanek's works offer game rules or instructions for action that the viewer can follow. As a player, as an actor, he becomes part of a communication network that is constantly expanded and archived by the artist - for example, in the telecommunications exhibitions.
"The means of transport for permanent expansion and dissemination is often, in addition to language, the inconspicuous object" - for example in the works '4. action-TAUSCHKOFFER' or '6. action-STIFTUNGSMUSEUM'.
Among the works to be seen/used at KünstlerHaus will be:
'GENERALStruktur' (Grundservice) [GENERALStructure' (basic service)], 'Limitation', 'Archiv der 100 Statements' [Archive of 100 Statements], 'PosA-Positive Apparate für den privaten Haushalt' ['PosA-Positive Apparatus for the Private Household], 'Ausstellung: UMGEBUNG' [Exhibition: ENVIRONMENT], 'Love Cosmetics', 'Wasserservice' ['Water Service], 'Eine wahre Lebenshilfe' [A True Life Help], 'Check-Boards' etc. etc.
The 4th action only takes place at the opening.
Mark Formanek will be available for a talk on 3.3. and 4.3.
