In collaboration with the international film festival of human rights,  this human world, whose this year’s movie poster  features a work by Marko Zink, Impart contemporary is proud to show the very first photographic series of the artist “Still life” in the new Impart contemporary Showroom, Schleifmühlgasse 18, 1040 Vienna.


“The art of using photographic space, as Marko Zink has done, initiates a social study on being „on-ones-own“ and in turn a self reflection inform of self assurance.”
Andrea Domesle


Adam Budak about Marko Zinks series: Stilleben 1-22

“Shiny reflective surfaces of our most basic everyday surroundings are for Marko Zink of particular interest as unconventional screens of his passionate (and narcissistic) quest for identity yet in disguise or under construction.

These are more truthful image-frames of our selves and more sincere companions of our lives than traditional mirrors that forcefully and banally impose on us one and the only (flat) version of how we look like. Zink seems to explore further the Foucaultian heterotopic quality of a mirror as an uncanny absent »other« space of deceit, a location of phantoms within the illusionistic void. Here, there is an almost psychotic paranoid world of such mirror-like surfaces that multiply realities in their tireless process of reflection.

Zink obsessively finds them everywhere as if desperately trying to set up an alternative to the old (and abused) means of reproduction, including mirrors and cameras of all sorts. There is something poetic in these small-scale discoveries, a sort of private mythology of the everyday.”
