biography

Matilde Marín’s work (Buenos Aires, 1948) is characterized by the thoroughness with which it adopts various techniques in the elaboration of its works, which include both photography and video, as well as engraving and installation.Matilde Marín’ s aesthetic ideas and projects always transcend the mere exercise of art and reached, through years, dexterity and undisputed refinement in image processing. Its current production is focused on the role of the artist as a “witness”, recording stories about the world we inhabit, as well as situations related to pure landscape and its natural or artificial alteration.

The Imaginary Journey of Kazimir Malevich is a series of sixteen intervened photographs that present the result of a search and discovery of the Suprematist multiplied forms in contemporary life, that trigger memories of Russian painter Kazimir Malevich.

Marin has achieved a pure and timeless spactiality in her transfigured images, which generate and transmit the feeling that the Suprematist forms may appear wherever the mind and hands produce them as a sign of human capacity for radical creation.

Indeterminate landscapes is her new series of photographic records that show timeless, unknown destinations with few geographical references; a nature that captivates with its apparent simplicity, provided of an enigmatic beauty. Landscapes arise outside the viewer who contemplates the horizon as the main route and Marin’s interventions as indicators of its presence in these uncertain destinations.
