Mario Asef‘s public interventions, photographs, videos, soundscapes and installations focus on the legibility of urban space and architecture within a specific sociocultural and historic context.
Seeking to explore intimate socio-critical and political aspects of forms, the artist constructs a narrative system, a thought experiment that aims to produce an unpredictable effect - a moment of logical absurdity - creating a fiction of the real. He is a precise and yet poetic recorder of the fleeting and the mundane. His work emphasizes, in an unpretentious way, moments of displacement and the disappearance of space and time. In a subversive and humorous way, Mario Asef manages to breach the rules of the every day life. Like a researcher he explores, by way of different mediums, the interdisciplinary construct of public spaces and public life.
