馬克(Marck,1964年生),瑞士著名錄像雕塑(videosculpture)藝術家,現居住與創作於蘇黎世(Zürich)。獨到的創作手法與細膩的影像處理,使其作品受多家藝術機構收藏,包含美國波士頓美術館(Museum of Fine Arts, Boston)、韓國斗山藝術中心(Doosan Art Center)、土耳其伊斯坦堡藝術中心(Art Center / Istanbul)與韓國私人美術館KOO HOUSE等,展出經歷遍及世界各地。

馬克曾說「錄像雕塑是四十歲後的搖滾樂」,不安於舊有創作形制,褪去傳統賦予雕塑和錄像的色彩,以動態的畫面觸撥我們觀看雕塑的思維,同時也築起有形的框架,使人捉摸於虛實之間。馬克的作品無法被單純定義為錄像與雕塑的結合,更像是極為細緻的工藝和理念的一體呈現,由出演的安排、影片拍攝的精確定位、多媒體素材與程式的編寫,至動力機械和雕塑的手工製作,「錄像雕塑」以全然創新的形式,揉合影像的平面化表述與雕塑的空間意義,不僅闢出錄像創作的新道路,也再擴張觀者感官的可能。

「錄像的目的不是敘述一個故事,而是激發觀眾的情緒」,馬克的作品看似以女性為主體,實際上則是以其作為社會縮影的代表,與框架的衝撞更探討著有形與無形的束縛,喚起觀者心中的共鳴。2017年首次來台於Bluerider ART舉辦個展,以《The Box》為題,以具體的意象題點馬克創造的有限空間,所帶來的無限想像,本次個展將透過多件作品滲入我們習以為常的生活,以多樣的視角帶領觀者揭示社會各個層面的隱性態度,並回身反省種種設限。

「水」是馬克創作中的經典元素,水的注入不僅放慢了一舉一動,更凸顯肢體與這股力量抗衡之美。作品《Waterwheel》中,影像人物自適地優游於水中,隨著人物漸漸徘徊游移聚焦起空間的限制,觀者也隨著畫面人物潛入、摸索而喘息,希冀這一方出口將在不久後出現。而結合影像和動力裝置的作品《Clockwork》,畫面人物以纖弱的體態躊躇著每一步,在方寸大的空間內不斷地移動,鐘擺墜下的瞬間凝結一切聲息,焦躁不安的情緒也隨著鐘擺的晃動被再再揪起。對馬克而言,這些創作本身並不被賦予任何特定的詮釋或答案,而是企盼能由觀看後所產生的衝擊,為觀者激起更多的思考。

Marck currently lives and works in Zürich, Swiss. The artist is internationally recognized for his videosculpture art. His unique and exquisite technique makes his works highly desirable among collectors. Marck’s works are in collections of many art institutes, including Boston Museum in the US, ArtCenter/Istanbul in Turkey, Doosan Art Center and private museum KOO HOUSE in Korea. His creation of videosculpture had also been exhibited extensively worldwide.

Marck’s dissatisfaction with the conventional representation of film on monitor lead him to renovate the concept. He detracts the static aspect from the sculptural body and sets real boundary for his video. His works are more than a simple combination of videos and sculptures. They are a logic consequence of his extensive examination with performances, films and videos, multimedia based projects and sculptural as well as kinetic objects. The female characters in Marck’s work are depersonalized. They are a symbol for his observations of our society. “My work has no message,” stated by Marck, “they are open for any interpretation whatsoever.” He does not mean to provide answers or targeted interpretations on certain topics, instead, he raises questions and leaves for inspiration.
