Marina Xenofontos (1988) was born in Limassol, Cyprus and works between Athens, Greece; Paris, France; and Amsterdam, Netherlands. She works in painting, sculpture, and video, reforming found objects and material she often pairs with novel constructions — kinetic light installations, digital avatars and their analogue representations. Her process involves charging frictions and failures created when seemingly disparate elements are brought together, and narrating the fictional relationships created in the progress. Her work often views cultural and political symbols through an intimate gaze, capturing methods for recovering the fantastical, imaginary aspect of culture obscured through either maturation or historical recording.
