Content description

Zen Marie is the founder of the […] Ellipses Journal (2015) – Marie is an artist who works in a variety of media. Core to his practice is a concern with how meaning is formed through different media, spaces and processes. While working from a position that begins with photography and film making he also works in performance, sculpture, graphic processes and writing. His areas of focus have included international sport, identity, nationalism, and public infrastructure. The binding link between these diverse areas has always been the relationship between desire, power, agency and their subversion. Marie currently lives and works in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he is a Lecturer in Fine Art art at the WITS School of Art. He is also a PhD candidate at WITS, with a focus on areas of art and theory in relation to what he calls situated aesthetic practice.
