Meet Mac Premo, an award-winning artist and self-proclaimed “stuffmaker.” A visual artist with an obsession about our relationship with death, his somewhat off-kilter yet entirely sincere artwork is made out wood, resin, pipes, knicknacks, glue, paper, photographs, and anything he finds laying around.
This past year, Dutch filmmaker Bas Berhout created this Vimeo-Staff-Picked three minute short film about Prem’s process and path as an artist and a man. The film is riveting and compact, and I’ve found myself thinking about what he says on more than one occasion. I’m also personally inspired by his work and the its oddity, despite often being made of very accessible things.
