Mark Goede

As an artist Mark Goede is interested in the construction of identity and the interaction between social roles. In Europe we fought to free ourselves from traditional institutions. But what does this liberation mean in relation to one’s formation of identity? Our social roles? Fulfilment? Our hopes and fears? Dreams and desires?

Due to working as a copywriter, text is Marks’s main tool of communication. His art pieces, called Readymades, is constructed by¬†adding new layers on top of old art works. Recontextualizing old photos, paintings and objects. Bought at thrift shops, found at flea markets and auctions. He wants to create a new dialogue between those old works and their new observers.
