Diego Marcon: Three Works

This monograph deals with Diego Marcon’s overall practice through the analysis of three works. ‘Monelle’ (2017), ‘Ludwig’ (2018), and ‘The Parents’ Room’ (2020) are his most recent and complex projects, and while they do not constitute a trilogy, they are all emblematic of central aspects of his practice. In his own highly personal theory on passions, Marcon explores and reinvents archetypes taken from movie genres such as horror, slapstick comedy, and cartoons, creating characters and settings with undertones of the uncanny, the tender, and the ruthless.
