Altered States

about Oliver “Ler” Marinkoski

The foundation of Oliver “Ler” Marinkoski‘s visual inspiration seems to come straight from a 1980 science-fiction horror movie, Altered States, when the main protagonist starts to physically change into nothingness. Oliver saw that movie when he was just a kid, and the forms and the changes of the actor were really terrifying to him. Later, when he watched the movie as a grownup, he got a better understanding of it, and the idea of nothingness was equally terrifying. Then, in high school, he discovered H. R. Giger, and the meeting was somehow definitive. Since there, objects slowly start to blend in with our body parts, becoming a single form that evoke obsessive, frustrating and depressive states typical of our time, as in Kokoro, Play it or Toothbrush.

Sculptor and digital artist, from Macedonia, Oliver has an improvised photo studio and lightning — but he also uses the daylight if the weather is good — where he develops his series of ideas and realizes the assembly of every photo manipulation. He believes that you have to work and create non-stop, experiment all the time and never stay in one place with your skills and ideas: “Good results are guaranteed. You are artists, everything is permitted, go beyond good and evil.”
