“Live Load” lecture performance uses a personal travel experience with a shipping container from Belgium to Finland as performative research to question social, economic and environmental implications of containerization.

Mark Požlep (b. 1981, Slovenia) finished his BA and MA at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana and completed an Advanced Master’s Degree in Transmedia at the Sint-Lukas Campus in Brussels and HISK in Ghent. He works in the field of visual and performative arts, spatial installations and video art. His artistic practice involves journey-travels, which function both as long-durational performance/endurance art and as an art piece in itself. It is an intense procedural exploration, using the methodology of action-research, cyclical pattern of observation and reflection. His work has been presented in numerous group and solo exhibition in Slovenia and abroad. 

In the framework of the project Time For Live Art, funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
