Marina Hachem

Estimated reading time: < 1 minute

Marina Hachem's work lies between drawing, painting, the object and the occupation of space. Making use of “hard” materials, which resist to the touch, such as cement, wire, bricks and demolition wood, some of his works often have a rough, ruined appearance – as in A.53 (2017), Estopim ( 2016) and O Falso Mendigo (2016; or even sketch and study – as seen in pieces such as Maria Julieta (2016), and Ateliê (2018).

Certain pieces accumulate layers that omit and withhold part of the image, as if each piece were a layer of a different time, a story that is told with each new materiality. Small drawings, illustrations, writings and scratches punctuate practically all of his production, revealing the importance of the line and figuration in his research. Some works bet on more ambitious scales, while others have small, perhaps intimate, dimensions, inviting us to explore and discover all sorts of supports used on the canvas alongside the characters and cryptic texts that we managed to fully understand.

Marina Hachem was born in São Paulo, in 1993. She holds a BA in Visual Arts from Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado, FAAP, having studied one semester at the celebrated Central Saint Martins, in London. Among the collective exhibitions in which he participated are: “Et tu, Art Brute?”, Andrew Edllin Galley, New York; 47th NOVÍSSIMOS Visual Arts Salon, Ibeu Gallery, Rio de Janeiro; “Metanoia”, Airez Gallery, Curitiba; and “A restlessness”, Galeria Estação, São Paulo. He has already held a solo exhibition entitled “Entrelinha”, at Galeria Arte Hall. He also received the second place award at the 47th Annual Art FAAP.
