Marin’s works seem to be positioned indeterminately between something that is about to collapse or has just been restored; between things that have been invested with the attention of care but also have the appearance of a ruin. Her artworks reflect on the rules dictated by the
contemporary marketplace, where standardisation dominates, and its influence over familiar objects. “I mostly use themes such as serialisation, repetition and estrangement of what is familiar in my artwork. In this respect, I have a particular interest in the everyday life, specifically in the material objects that give shape to it.”

Livia Marin

Livia Marin is a London-based Chilean artist whose work has been characterized throughout her artistic practice by large-scale installations and the appropriation of mass-produced and mass-consumed objects. Central to the work is a trope of estrangement that works to reverse an excess of familiarity that commands the life of the everyday and the dictates of the marketplace.

Marin's work has been exhibited internationally, including in Chile, Brasil, Columbia and London, in both solo and group shows.
