Maceió, Brazil, 1980.

Represented by Area 72.

PIPA 2016 and 2017 nominee.

“Marina Camargo’s work is anchored around an ongoing investigation about the representation of various things and phenomena in the world; exposing the tensions that exist between the world we inhabit and the world that is represented to us via images and other types of material culture. Often developing projects through long-term extensive research processes, Camargo most recently has been exploring the representation of various landscapes—as images, as memories, as travel narratives, and as cartographies. Her interests highlight the impossibility of representing complete realities and locales and through her work she draws attention to the elements that are lost, silenced, and forgotten in the space between reality and representation.“ Cesar Garcia (Curator and director of The Mistake Room, Los Angeles).

Camargo’s education took place in Porto Alegre (where she studied for a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Visual Arts), completing her arts education in Barcelona (Universitat de Barcelona) and Munich (ADBK München).

Marina Camargo was awarded with different grants and scholarships, as DAAD Scholarship for artists, Bolsa Iberê Camargo, Bolsa de Estímulo à Produção em Artes Visuais (FUNARTE), Prêmio Açorianos de Artista Destaque do Ano (Porto Alegre), Prêmio FUNARTE de Arte Contemporânea, Prêmio Brasil Arte Contemporânea (Fundação Bienal de Arte de São Paulo.
