Artist Talk: Marcia Espinosa & Marina Kailis

8 July, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Marcia Espinosa and Marina Kailis engage in an artist talk to accompany their joint exhibition Remains. Come along to hear the artists elaborate on the inevitability of the human condition and the creative techniques and processes they used to create their ceramic sculptures, the guardians of memories.

About the artists

Marcia Espinosa and Marina Kailis are emerging artists who graduated from the Central Institute of Technology in 2014 with an Advanced Diploma in Visual Arts and Contemporary Craft. Both were selected for the annual Hatched Exhibition at PICA in 2015. Since then they have participated in several group exhibitions.

Marcia Espinosa is Australian-Chilean. She was born in Santiago de Chile and migrated to Australia in 2007. Marcia works in 2D and 3D, her work often being layered with images and colour producing complex and intricate pieces. The themes that she explores usually have a social and political aspect and focus on contemporary culture. Her intention is to prompt the viewer to reflect on current and controversial issues in our society.  

Marina Kailis was born and raised in Perth but is of Greek heritage. She works largely with ceramics and has lately been concentrating on installations constructed of multiple pieces. The element of repetition in Marina’s work provides her with the opportunity to play with forms, and to subtly modify and transform objects often drawn from everyday life.

 

Remains opens on Friday 7 July, 6pm
Exhibition continues 8-23 June.
