Marian Pălie

Marian Pălie (b. 1978) lives and works in Bucharest, Romania.

Since his early years he has developed an interest in contemplative aesthetics, with subsequent studies supporting this inclination: philosophy, theology, cultural anthropology. He holds a BA in philosophy and theology with a thesis on “Post-anticipations of modernity”, an MA in fashion and costume strategies (2013) and a PhD (in progress) at the National University of Arts in Bucharest. Working in the interdisciplinary area, Marian Pălie connects several areas of interest such as photography, nonfigurative collage, applied and theorized meta-styling, video installations, curating, bibliophilic design. Themes such as reform, exploration of the body, contrast and cohabitation between the visible and the invisible, analysis of the supremacy of emotions, decomposition of the body in a post-human philosophy through photography are often found in his works and writings.
