​​​​​​​Marina Xenofontos

Born in 1988.

Marina Xenofontos is a sculptor working through painting, installation, video, and animation.

Acutely aware of the rifts produced in a personal memory when confronted with the hegemonic, ideologically produced versions of history, her work narrates a struggle to recoup the imaginary, lost in the dissonance between them.Excavating everyday relics – symbols of lost futures and minor histories – she collides them with the hypermodern; playing up and repeating the failures produced through their frictions. Hues and rainbows, deja-vu and avatars, sci-fi and fairy tales, all alike are brought into orbit—becoming points of contention for the mechanisms of production and understanding of subjectivity and history.
