Leonardo Marz
January 30 - April 03, 2009

In a culture so steeped in commercialism that originality often gets buried under remakes, cover songs and pre-fab models, what is the artist's role? Marz confronts this sticky issue in three separate projects during his eight-week Cleveland residency. Each of Marz's individual projects, falling under the umbrella of YENKA RIKETIK BOM, rely on the act of consuming someone else's art to make a new product. His work rethinks how he, as an artist, and the public engage with the media, commercial products, art, the music industry and fame.
