Alien Realism is an installation by Marc Oosting comprised of sculptures, paintings and lots of neon. Alien Realism derives it’s title from a project the artist started two years ago. For Alien Realism Marc Oosting commissioned a Korean artist to reproduce his own marker sketches in oil paint. Where they were disregarded and scattered around his studio before, the sketches are now brought into the center of attention by undergoing a dramatic transformation. From the quick marker drawings they are turned into elaborate, time-consuming oil painted copies. Oostings handwriting is reproduced through the superb technique of the Korean artist while being obscured at the same time. Questions concerning cultural production, authenticity and otherness lie at the core of Alien Realism.
