15. ALICIA MARVAN
An immersive installation in the stairwell comprised of sculptures inspired by underground mineral caves. This project is focused around the transformation of matter, from its natural state to its streamlined variety of sub-products and makes apparent the exploitation and bastardization of a particular mineral: Gypsum. This installation continues the artist’s ongoing investigation of space, form, movement, time and thought, often in relationship to the human body.
