Livia Marín ~ Broken Things and Nomad Patterns
Livia Marín is a London-based Chilean artist. The Broken Things series began in 2009 and Nomad Patterns in 2012.
Livia describes her work:
My artistic practice has been characterized by large-scale installations and the appropriation of mass-produced and consumer objects. I employ techniques and strategies that are characteristic of Sculpture, Installation and Process Art. I employ everyday objects to enquire into the nature of how we relate to material objects in an era dominated by mass-production, standardization and global circulation.
My work was initially informed by the immediate social and political context of Chile in the 1990s that amounted to a transition from a profoundly and overtly disciplinary political regime (under seventeen years of dictatorship) to one of an economic, though no less disciplinary, regime with a strongly developed neo-liberal agenda.
