MARKO ZINK | M 48° 15' 24.13" N, 14° 30' 6.31" E
The exhibition title could not be more objective M 48° 15' 24.13" N, 14° 30' 6.31" E are the coordinates for Mauthausen. What matters to Marko Zink is not documentation but irritation. He forces viewers to look carefully, opening up a multi-layered debate. Using the medium of photography, he attempts to make a twofold disappearance visible: the extermination of people and the eradication of memory. It is an intensive engagement with a past that will not expire. The medium chosen by Marko Zink is analogue photography. He works on his films before exposing them. He boils them or stamps on them, treats them with chlorine or ink eraser. Using this delicate film material, he photographs selected sites in and around the former concentration camp. Sometimes Zink's images seem like found historical photos, taken quickly and in secret, bleached by the sun, half destroyed by the ravages of time. Sometimes the photos with their injuries seem to give an account on a separate plane of the atrocities that took place here fewer than eight decades ago. And sometimes they seem to make visible what only seemingly cannot be seen anymore. With his work, Marko Zink reminds us what is possible: that which remembers the past, and that which warns against what is to come – we can see it all. If only we want to.
