Born in 1961 in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Body, behaviour and space; intuition, sensitivity and perception; experience and knowledge: these are the key words of Marina De Caro’s work. De Caro develops her poetics from the field of drawing towards the realms of sculpture and performance. Her spatial and action-based works often incorporate soft wearable sculptures especially designed to invite the viewer/performer to experience an unpredictable regard on the everyday, on bodily and social behavior and norms. In her drawings and experiences, De Caro disrupts the given, abruptly. A most refined and irreverent master in the use of color, her works also unfold as delicately poetic spatial entities that usually envelop the viewer in a particular novel ambience and experience.
