10 Dec Marisa Govin
Marisa Govin is a contemporary visual artist and art educator with a creative passion and cultivated imagination. Her art is the result of a need to give perceivable form to the unperceivable, a dialogue between the visible and invisible orders of life, forming part of the activities of vital exchange and cyclic renovation of all living beings.
She has worked extensively creating and teaching different Latin American native art forms and incorporating ancestral knowledge into a new sense of contemporary cultural identity. With University studies in Visual Arts, Creative Ceramics and Graphic Design, she dedicates her work as an artist and art educator to a dialogue of both ecological philosophy and social movement that draws on environmental studies, critiques of modernity and science, and feminist critical analyses and activism to illuminate connections between women and nature, and the implications of these relationships for environmental practices. Her work addresses the necessity of conservation of the biosphere and sustainable cultivation, reminding us why they were once a celebrated part of cultural identity.
