GENINE MARIE LARIN
Genine Marie Larin is a Brisbane based visual artist working predominantly in sculpture and video. Her practice navigates phenomenological feelings, sensations and emotions via speculative compositions that combine pattern and viscerality. Within the space of practice she examines ideas and expresses feelings without being censored or oppressed by external, patriarchal ideologies. She considers aesthetic choices, based on gut feelings of attraction and repulsion, as having ethical implications. As a result, there is a strong feminist temperament to her work and working methods, which are especially informed by Kristeva’s psychoanalytic feminism.
Marie Larin has completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Arts) with First Class Honours and a Masters of Fine Art (Research) from the Queensland University of Technology. She has exhibited her work nationally, a selection of shows include; ‘Stone Baby: An Exploration of Affect and Trauma in Visual Art’, The Block, Brisbane (2014); ‘Collaborative Resistance’, The Backdoor Gallery Room 60, Brisbane (2014); ‘Pars pro toto’, The Block, Brisbane (2014); ‘Vegas Spray Road Trip’, the lock up Cultural Centre, Newcastle (2013); and ‘15680 (AS THE CROW FLIES)’, Minute Gallery, Berlin (2013). She was a recipient of the 2013 Moreton Bay Regional Art Awards best work by local artist prize and a finalist in ‘15 Artists’ Redcliffe City Art Gallery’s annual curated awards. Marie Larin’s work has been featured in Eyeline.
