Tamara Marino is a multifaceted artist, using a variety of techniques and materials for the realization of her works, which mainly consist of site-specific installations, sculptures, paintings, performances / happenings, photographic and video documentations. Her current research is developed through two types of investigation: 1) the anthropological analysis of new feminisms, trying, through various types of approaches, to propose new questions; 2) the study and observation of place, culture and people in relation to her cultural context of origin. The accumulation and rhythmic repetition of the object, as well as of the obsessive gesture during the creative act, represent a constant, an open gateway to the scenario of obsessions that belong to its processual sphere. Action is the most important reference: it is what makes his work performative, ranging from produced objects to photographic shots, from video to happenings. Her work develops at the end of a process of theoretical and analytical study and then reveals itself through the medium most suitable for artistic restitution.
