Marina Breit has a creative practice spanning textiles, jewellery, object, and site-specific installation; in her work she explores emergent relationships between viewer, object and site. She engages with sculptural studies that are created and arranged intuitively in staged settings. Through a process of material investigations she works with relational elements and characteristics of aesthetic intrigue that manifest in the assemblage of the works. Her practice expresses a sensibility toward minimalism, balance, scale and the subtle textures and forms alluding to human presence and the handmade. Found objects and everyday materials are transfigured and re-contextualised to invite narrative tensions and opportunities for dialogue between the viewer and the conditioned object.
