Mark Salvatus

Mark Salvatus (b. 1980). I studied Advertising at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila and started as an artist as a street artist. Since 2006, I call my overall artistic project as “Salvage Projects” working across various disciplines and media. Basing it on the word ‘salvage’ or to save or rescue which is also the meaning of my surname, I try to build direct and indirect engagements using objects, photography, archives, videos, installations, participatory projects, and platform organizing that present different outcomes of energies and experiences. My preoccupations are based on constant movements and travels - coming from the countryside to the city and elsewhere, addressing and building new imaginations of the contemporary land –urban and rural, the local migrant, and the vernacular historiographies. I am interested in communication and miscommunication as a form and as a structure and not as a process. A form that is unstable, vulnerable, and precarious as a fluid form and not fixed or established. A practice that deals a lot with collecting, repetition, and series based on my lived experiences and its relationship to the world.
