Pio XII, Maranhão, Brazil, 1982.
Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Represented by Periscópio Arte Contemporânea.

PIPA Prize 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2018 nominee.

Marcone started his artistic experimentation in the late 1990’s and has since participated in several exhibitions throughout the country and abroad. His work involves several languages, such as painting, sculpture, video, objects, photographs and installations.

His work is related to the memory of worn out materials (boats, body works, utensils impregnated with culturally constructed meanings. The artist develops a work methodology where the interest lies on the symbolic exchange of materials, appropriation and displacement, procedures developed by the artist which aim at giving new meaning to “popular culture” in the economic circuit of “contemporary art”.
