ALL THINGS PASS INTO THE NIGHT
SAT 20 JUNE UNTIL SAT 12 JULY 2008
Marcus' art practice is concerned with the way we are constructed through social customs, histories and behaviours. What interests him most are the formative periods during our childhood and adolescence where we construct large parts of our ideas about who we are, where we live, and the fluid rights and wrongs between.
All Things Pass into the Night is an extension of these thoughts and ideas carried on from previous projects. Through the use of decorative colonial objects, homo-centric signifiers, Freudian concepts (and a little bit of Silence of the Lambs), the work in this project looks at how we are trapped by the things we desire which then transform themselves into the objects of our fears.
Since completing an undergraduate degree in sculpture, Marcus has been involved with CLUBS Project inc., AREA Contemporary Art Space and has worked as Director of Visual Arts for the Midsumma Festival. Marcus has been living and working in Melbourne since 2000 and plans to move to London in mid 2008.
