September 28, 2020 – January 13, 2021

Copy and paste, peel and stick, fold, cut, repeat, replicate. Press, push, punch, kick, left, right, wrong, right. Performing the same series of tasks, Mark finds himself somewhere between the misery of toil on a factory line and the indomitable joy of dancing. He explores this conundrum using the materials present in his life. He sets off in pursuit of magic and the unknown, it is a search for a way out, an escape from the mundanity of everyday life and expectations.
