Daniel R Marks is an interdisciplinary artist based in Naarm/Melbourne, currently undertaking a PhD research project in the area of “post-singular” performance-installation methodologies at RMIT University.
Applying a framework of queer self-esotericism to processes of entropy and feedback-looping, Marks works through collusions of performance art, poetic-didactic writing/diagram work, sculptural installation, and accumulative media archives to exhume intertextual potentialities of embodiment. Artefacts of doing and undoing are, in Marks’ practice, choreographed as archaeo-architectural re-configurations of bodily agency. They have shown performance, installation and video projects at various art venues within Melbourne and regional Victoria including RMIT Gallery, La Trobe Art Institute, BLINDSIDE, Testing Grounds, Trocadero Art Space, Schoolhouse Studios and First Site. In 2019 they were included in the City of Knox’s Immerse public art program. In 2020 they were selected for the DEBUT XVI graduate artist showcase at BLINDSIDE, and presented at RMIT’s Practice Research Symposium.
