VIVA MANDIĆ

Solo performance and video by Marko Mandić

Viva Mandić is a presentation of the artist’s existence through a triple presence: public, intimate, physical. His public and intimate presence can be experienced on two video screens: First video contains Marko’s theatre achievements from the beginning of his career up to the Slovene national award (2009). Second video simultaneously discloses his secret artistic experience from two nights spent in Slovene National Theatre repository. His third, physical presence, is sealed in a plastic bag in the middle of the stage. Plastic bag contains his body and collects his sweat. In one hour Marko literary extracts his artistic life into one single glass of sweat.

The essence of his performance summarize the three following questions: 1. Why am I doing all this? 2. Who is all this meant for? 3. What is my purpose? With his answers Marko remains radical and uncompromising: 1. Because of me. 2. For Me. 3. Me. Viva Mandić! Exhibitionist, Narcissus, Jester, Intellectual, Animal, Egoist, Artist.
