For INTERFERENCE, Marek Radke developed two site-specific works for different spatial situations in Dar El Jamiet. One work was based on pet bottles, coated with green fluorescent pigments, floating in a dark blue space.

One work was based on wooden sticks coated with red fluorescent pigments, that were placed in a random order in the center of the main space. All existing interior was shadowed by the surrounding UV light.

Marek Radke is a painter, his canvases are spaces filled with light. His works are enterable pictorial spaces organized by abstract objects. Their surfaces are covered with fluorescent pigments, staging their responsive reaction to surrounding UV light.

Dedicated to the vocabulary of geometry, lines, rectangles and cubes, circles and spheres are reoccurring shapes. As abstract compositions inline with the conceptual approaches of Concrete Art, Marek Radke explores the esthetic correlation between space, form, color, and light.

His choreographies of visual relationships form and deform while walking through the artwork’s space, and only in perception, they form viable constructions.
