Online Artist Talk: Things that are there because they are not there, like a shadow or death About the speaker Notes to HKBU students Registration
The talk will be an introduction to Markus Vater’s work and some of the underlying ideas and processes. His work is diverse and hard to categorize. Drawing is at its heart, but he also makes Paintings, Animation, Sculpture , Photographs and Performance. In this talk he will look at our world, that seems comprised of firmly structured, repeating systems ,with stories in place that constitute our beliefs. In his work, he calls out these stories and pulls the curtain away to reveal a rich, contradictive, humorous world: Full of possibilities and surprising connections.
