The object becomes the subject and vice versa. Rather than presenting humans as the culmination of creation, he shows them as its appendix. This creates hidden image puzzles, where only body parts, like will-o’-the-wisps, confuse the viewer. Marko Zink meets reality with a double bottom, showing humour at the first glance, which leads into the tragic aspects of his oeuvre at a second glance. The series presented is performative and ephemeral in nature. Zink works with analog cameras and only with natural light. The carrier material, analog film, is boiled multiple times before exposure, and systematically chemically and mechanically processed for some series. The resulting decomposition of the film and the disintegration of the negatives is not only an important artistic concept Zink uses, but also an easily recognisable signature characteristic of his work.
