In the pop-up exhibition “the tableau of a dead bird” german artist Marlene Bart presents parts of her artistic research results about the phenomena of tableaus, taxidermy and scientific images from her three weeks stay at art quarter budapest.
A tableau is a visual form to organize knowledge and is influenced by the “macrocosmos-in-microcosmos-thinking” of the renaissance. This way to organize visual information was often used in encyclopedias of the 17th and 18th century. One of the most popular examples is the “encyclopédie ou Dictionnaire raisonné des sciences, des arts et des métiers” by Denis Diderot and Jean Baptiste le Rond d’Alembert.
Marlene Bart deals in her artistic practice with the combination of scientific and artistic visual language. She focuses on the artistic potential of scientific -objects, -phenomena and illustrations in works such as anatomy models, taxidermy, cabinets of curiosities or encyclopedias. The use of multimedia techniques allows her to combine a wide range of image content in a playful way, to refer to the historical dimension of scientific publications and to put them in a contemporary context.
Marlene Bart (*1991, lives and works in Berlin and Hanover) studied under professor Wolfgang Ellenrieder at the University of Arts in Brunswick (HBK), the Villa Arson (École nationale supérieure d’art) in Nice and the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. She has been a docent at the University of Arts in Brunswick (HBK) since 2017 and started her PhD at Bauhaus University, Weimar in 2018.
