Vladislav Markov

 In my work I explore. I do not represent. I create elements to be encountered by themselves. Elements to be affected by other elements. Non-literal, non-linear, nonverbal, they exist rhizomatically, viscerally, not unlike modern dance or a Beckett play. My work does not relate to intellectual structure or to the text, which is its own separate entity. It is the emotion of being as being, looking as looking—not
referencing, which is in effect non-living. I am just its incidental conduit. My objects are made intuitively and fulfill its purposeful uselessness. The end result is not the goal, the process of making is.
