Marina Xenofontos: View From Somewhere Near

Marina Xenofontos, View From Somewhere Near, Kunstverein in Hamburg, 2024. Marina Xenofontos, 2009

Through cultural artifacts, film, and sculpture, Marina Xenofontos explores the reciprocal production of ideology and knowledge in lived and remembered architecture. The artist examines social space and its relationship to material vernaculars through the repositioning of familiar and standardised forms into sculpture. Here, personal archives that evoke both the transience of life and class structures manifest in the formal language of that which would have otherwise gone unnoticed or neglected, while standing in as a parable of loss and transformation.
