Nikola Marković is responding to the problems of continuity and hyper-production of values in the information age.His works are preceded with a wish to continue and elaborate what has already been commenced. Looking at visual information that, have potential to generate new pictorial ideas – a mix of found motives and fragments appears as the result of artists investigation. He chooses elements and fragments from other systems and incorporate them into a new complex. The new complex shifts the point of view, shifts the point of the work, shifts the attitude and plays with various subjects from the history of art, culture and science. Intentional acceptance of diversity within one environment opens the question on the very ability to communicate. He pleads for another chance to conceive an efficient model of artistic and social liberty.
