Conditions for Re-entry
Conditions for Re-entry brings together Mark Misic’s use of installation, drawing and video, featuring figures, masks and symbols representing acts of magic, death and transformation. Misic is concerned with the intersection of the physical human experience and universal phenomenology. His work explores the strange couplings, flows and alliances that occur when our internal systems of self-governance and human physicality morph with the primordial landscape. With paint and movement Misic examines society’s compulsive regulation of madness, health, welfare, production, sexuality, childhood and pedagogy, and reflects the body as an object of enquiry, articulating what Maurice Merleau-Ponty refers to as a “permanent condition of experience, a constituent of perceptual openness to the world”.
