General Text :

" It would be banal to say that Raoul Marek deals in all of his works with places and spaces. However, it is neither the sculptural space defined by categories like volume, emptiness or dynamic, or the architectonical space, although this one is very often the framework for his works.

The object in its artistical exploration is the social and spiritual space of a place. But Raoul Marek does not apply scientific criterias for studying people, their institutions and rituals. He watches places concerning it socially relevant interactions (for instance the game in ritual actions). His work is meant to influence these habits. With the help of every-day-objects or materials, mainly chosen in regard to their affective or culturally defined potential, he creates private enclaves in the public space and vice versa.

He makes immobile objects mobile. He disturbs our every-day-habits, our agreements, our rituals. He establishes new models of relationships between people and their different environments and gives them new emphasis. " Dr.Bernhard Fibicher
