Artist

Carme Mariscal


(Palo Alto, CA, México, 1968 - )

Born into a family with Catalan origins, Carme Mariscal has ably positioned her work on the cusp of installation, photography and video, seeking to show the fragility, transformation and progressive dematerialization of the body. This interest for corporeality goes as far back as her earlier pictorial origins, coinciding with collaborations in a hospital with young people suffering from eating disorders. Another theme present in her work is the self-portrait, which in a tendency not from body art, has allowed her to reflect upon the subject of organic mutation as a conceptual and aesthetic allegory of identity, pleasure and suffering.
