Chiesa della Misericordia di Venezia, BeDifferent 2017:
ComPUSter is the first mixed-media artwork byMarco Guglielmi ReImmortal. It is a set of six works (not merely sculptures, but “Creatures”) that may be displayed separately or together.
ComPUSter implements the decomposition of both organic and mechanical matter, showing at the same time the obsolescence of materials, minds, ideas and cultures. Old computers and proto-industrial machines join brand new computers in the same destiny: the inevitability of decline and oblivion.
Here the poetics of ready-made combines with craftsmanship and with an accurate antiquarian research: every single element of the artwork is either a piece of proto-industrial antiques or handmade by the artist himself. The language is between conceptual and “arte povera”, mixed with video and performing art. The importance of working on the body, the integration of organic animal materials (such as mice or oxen brains under resin) together with the use of new media expand the concept of ready-made to new and unexplored horizons.
ComPUSter n.03 alla Factory del MACRO di Roma, 2017:
Within the common concept, each ComPUSter is a unique and unrepeatable visual representation of a different idea.
