18 Dec Marisa Govin
Marisa Govin is an artist and art educator with a creative passion and cultivated imagination. Her artwork encourages the sustainability of the earth through the intrigue of the subject itself. It 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 producing art 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.
She has taught continuously for more than 12 years in a wide variety of spaces including Studio Classes locally in Argentina, as well as offering her wisdom in women’s circles regularly. Her professional work includes teaching at several different Universities and educational institutions in Argentina such as UNCuyo, Universidad Aconcagua, Universidad de Mendoza and SOU in the US.
