Marian is Leaving the Building...

Marian is Leaving the Building...

Marian announced that he was leaving Fabrica last week. Someone said that this place would be like having a Santaless Christmas without him.

You’ve been here for how long?
I’ve been here for two years.

What’s the best and worst stuff you’ve seen here?
It’s impossible for me to keep this answer short. It’s been a long time with a lot of stuff happening, both positive and negative. Generally I’ve done my best work here and I’ve shared the best moments together with you guys.
It’s been the best time of my life as far as going out and spending free time is concerned. I’ve seen people getting naked and jumping off boats and bridges into rivers, I’ve heard people playing saxophone in the Fabrica elevator, I was in the winning team at a football tournament, I’ve experienced parties inside Fabrica (and I mean parties), I saw an amazing jam session at Treviso’s only non-Trevisian bar, I even got to dance in the streets. These are moments I’m going to remember for the rest of my life!
On the other hand I’ve spent too many nights working on proposals for projects that turned out being nothing but hot air, I could have been more clever in scheduling my time. My favourite negative event is the first big meeting we had for the exhibition at the Centre Pompidou: We got told that this would be day zero and that from now on we would start thinking about how this exhibition could look like. But we had already been working on proposals for two months – basically for nothing! It was ridiculous and I thought this would be the end of our collaboration with the Pompidou. Fortunately I was wrong.

What did you do before Fabrica?
For half a year I didn’t do much aside from a bit of freelancing. And before that I finished my studies in visual communication at the University of Art and Design in Linz, Austria.

Where are you headed now and what will life be like for you?
Now I’m going to apply at some advertising agencies inside and outside Europe, and hopefully I’m going to live in an exciting city soon. I will let you know!

Do you think it will be hard to readjust to “real life?“
I think changes in life are never easy. Coming to Fabrica was quite hard for me as well. But I hold the opinion that it’s good to change every now and then. Otherwise you get too comfortable with your daily routine.

What will you miss the most about life here?
Our weekly football matches, parties at Fabricanti’s apartments (probably with the police showing up after one hour), and hanging out at the local cafés on Saturdays.

What’s your greatest accomplishment in Fabrica?
I’ve learned a lot about relations and relationships, little lessons about life, which are a big benefit.

Any last words?
Last words are crap; let’s meet again somewhere!

Say farewell to our friendly giant. This is his last week.
