MarksMara - Group Chat
“Hello?” It’s your microbes calling. Reflecting on our distanced times and inspired by their research in microbiology, MarksMara use microscopic footage as medium for a wide array of content. Using the familiar format of a teleconference, the fragmented and disrupted conversation between micro-characters mirrors equally and increasingly incohesive discourse on the macro scale.
Multidisciplinary artists Jared Marks (US/DE) and Mara Ploscaru (RO/DE) together form MarksMara. Merging their backgrounds in performing and visual arts, they work equally instinctually and conceptually with text, moving images, objects and performance, using content from a wide variety of sources: pop culture, science fiction, science fact and theory.
