Boris Marinin – Israel

Multidisciplinary artist and curator, Boris Marinin, born in 1987 at the city of Moscow, Russia, Immigrated to Israel in 1997. Holds a BFA in Screen Arts, and MFA at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. His artistic process is influenced mainly by self-study, the practice of frustration and his psychoanalytic analysis. Artists Judith Sasportas, Joseph Beuys, Matthew Barney and musical genre Black Metal, inspired artistic decision and are an integral part of his developmental process. In his art, Marinin tries to differentiate and capture the sublimity of nature using amorphous forms, that do not necessarily relate to the plain material world we know. With his analytical art, Marinin will take us through a journey where we will be exposed to the movement of nature, extinction and opportunity while, uncovering personal interpretations of the connection between an artist and an object in order to show us what lies behind our dimension. Boris Marinin is currently lives and works in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Greenhouse, 2019

The video was made with a thought of climate change and the “greenhouse” effect – the trapping of the sun’s warmth in a planet’s lower atmosphere, due to the greater transparency of the atmosphere to visible radiation from the sun than to infrared radiation emitted from the planet’s surface. The greenhouse in my video is a mental\psychological place. Out of this state born the corpse of overwhelming sensitivity, we are overshadowed by blinding sun and yet in dark. The negative environmental effect is the chaos inside of the human. If we want to improve nature – we need to understand the chaos inside of us.
