Bio-Note


Iván Marino was born in Rosario, Argentina, in 1968. He studied cinema and video-art in his native country. His works started to be internationally appreciated in the early nineties, as he received support from Rockefeller, MacArthur and Antorcha foundations, as well as first prizes in several international festivals (Hannover Up-and-Coming International Film Festival 1997, Videobrasil Contemporary Art Festival 1998, Brazil; ForumVídeo Belo Horizonte 1995, Brazil, etc.). He then commenced a broad career which would take him to study and produce projects in the University of California at Los Angeles (TV and Film Department, UCLA, USA), in UDK/Filminstitut (Berlin, Germany), ZKM/Center for Art and Media(Karlsruhe, Germany), KHM/Academy of Media Art (Köln, Germany) and MECAD/Media Centre of Art and Design (Barcelona, Spain). He started his research and specialisation in media art in European institutions, creating works of art in interactive supports such as the web, CD or networks in general, which gained acknowledgment in the artistic scene.

Ivan Marino has been living in Barcelona since the year 2000, devoted to artistic production, research and teaching in the realm of University. He has lately focused his attention on exploring, through his video installation with programmed images, the founding of audiovisual language—the formal rules of the film-making apparatus and the ideological frame implied by them. His latest works analyse the script strategies of audiovisual contemporary speech and the conditions of possibilities lying behind the media which represents them.

His work is being shown in the main art fairs in Europe (ARCO, Art Cologne, Art Brussels) and takes part in the collections of acknowledged museums and international art festivals.
