Biography

Marina Mardas, 1992 , lives and works in Paris. Member of the artist-run space in.plano.

Marina Mardas is a transdisciplinary artist based in Paris. Through her work she aims to do a long-term research of post-modern society and what makes us Human. Her Lebanese roots as well as her socio-anthropologic academical background gave her a sharp yet wide vision of both contemporary and ancient social dynamics. Her approach oscillates between the individual and the collective and her main themes of work revolve around Memory and its widest possible meaning. 

As being transdisciplinary her media include : installations, sculpture, sound design, photography, video, performance and writing both theory and poetry. Questioning the world in a rhizomatic way rather than binary, her artworks are always dancing poetically with a dystopian vision of the world but, yet, merge to questions that could lead us to see the light of an utopia.

 

Her aesthetic is mainly composed of very contrasted black and white or vivid colors that represents the dichotomy between utopia and dystopia. She uses all kinds of human created materials which are the symbol of our non-sustainable way of living. The structure and lines are an important part of her work as they shape and reflect the harmony that can lie under the chaotic and maximalist appearance of her pieces. She is mostly influenced by postmodern theories, brutalism, fashion design & experimental music.
