Nomad Patterns by Livia Marin

Livia Marin employs everyday objects to enquire into the nature of how we relate to material objects in an era dominated by mass-production, standardization and global circulation.

She does this with techniques and strategies that are characteristic of Sculpture, Installation and Process Art.
