Opening Night: Remains

Marina Kailis and Marcia Espinosa

7 July, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us in the opening of Marcia Espinosa and Marina Kailis’ spectacular exhibition, Remains, featuring a series of ceramic sculptures (the guardians of memories) that explore another way for the living to mark and celebrate past lives and the experience of life.

 

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 continues 8-23 June.
