Marina Lattuca

ARTISTS IN RESIDENCY
14.02.2022 - 22.04.2022

Marina Lattuca¬†was born in Rio de Janeiro and uses writing, painting, drawing and sewing to develop her own archetypes and mythologies. The artist has a degree in Journalism from PUC-RJ and was a student at the Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage. In 2021, her short story “Death or the imminence of what is about to cease to exist” was selected and published in the Off Flip Prize collection. Within her practice, Marina is dedicated to writing images and drawing texts. Through a kind of autopoiesis, her research focuses on the invention and reinterpretation of new mythologies and mysticisms, having her own body and memories as the object of experiments. In an almost archaeological process, the artist seeks to stratify different layers of the soul, investigating one by one. Marina participates in Despina Residency Program from February to April 2022.
