Marina Višić
(b. 1987 in Roermond, works and lives in Tilburg, The Netherlands)

In 2016, Marina Višić obtained an MFA at the Slade School of Fine Art, London. At her degree show presentation, she received the Jeanne Szego prize for the imaginative use of colour. Her solo shows include "SPHERE. (AFTER A PAUSE)", (2016, Kers Gallery, Amsterdam) and "Myriade" (2013, Noordbrabants Museum, 's-Hertogenbosch). Her works are also exhibited in the group shows at The Crypt Gallery, London UK (2017), Kers Gallery, Amsterdam NL (2017), Anise Gallery, London UK (2016). Višić trained as an assistant curator at SEA Foundation, a non-profit artist project space and AiR (Artist-in-Residence program) in The Netherlands. She currently works independently as a curator and project manager, organising exhibitions, symposia and publications.
In her work, Višić investigates how a variety of textures and movements can be placed into the landscape of the moving image. The video pieces rethink the bodily experience and give the sensation of being lost and immersed. Staging is important as well as the scale of the images and their relation to the body. The work is presented as an object in a constant motion, rather than a time based video carrying a narrative. The initial objects and materials in the work undergo is a transformation. The real into the virtual and back to the real - portal - something mundane propelled into the stardom, becoming part of a fantastical realm, turning the virtual into the palpable.
The core of her residency at AIT is formed by architectural and geographical references from Junichiro Tanizaki's "In Praise of Shadows" and the films of Akira Kurosawa. These are the driving forces for her research of both modern and traditional elements of Japanese aesthetics concerning light, shadow, movement, materials and surfaces.
