Mark Divo writes about Marius Konvoj

Marius Konvoj (*1986)
Ostrava based artist Marius Konvoj has been a key figure in the Czech art world for the last ten years, and is one of the most important contemporary artists on the local scene. By using a working vocabulary charged with memories, experiences, and involving his own body without clothes directly in the often-dangerous processes and powers unleashed by his work, Marius Konvoj combines plastic thinking with subjectively consummated sexuality in his work. His installations and events become explorations of life’s motor and gravitational forces, and consolidate – despite, or even because of, their apparent absurdity – into impressive symbols of fundamental human experiences.
