Tondo Artis: Fair or Unfair?

Video Artist: Marin Kazimir
Country: Year: Duration: 18 min 28 sec


An experimental piece of art filmed with a 360-degree Ladybug camera and created during many Art Basel art fairs for 7 years. Marin Kasimir gathered a group of 15 friends who represent the Brussels art world to help him create this piece. The idea of the work developed from exploring new technical possibilities of panoramic spherical image and sound to humor and social criticism of the processes of commercialization in art.

Marin Kazimir

Marin Kasimir was born in 1957 in Munic, where he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts. Since 1982 he has lived and worked in Brussels, where he was awarded the Prix de la Jeune Peinture Belge in 1985.

Since 1989, Kasimir has added panoramic photography to his pictorial and sculptural vocabulary, as independent works or as friezes for public spaces. Several permanent installations testify to this: the CERIA/COOVI metro station in Brussels (2003), the “Puzzle Impossible” in Rennes, a public commission (2004), an integration in the St Georges car park in Lyon (2005), the “Frise en Fleur” in Brussels as part of the 101st Percent programme (2007), as well as other installations in Munich, Amsterdam, Bordeaux, St-Niklaas and Toulon (2018).
