Marina Potok



I am a multi-disciplinary artist, working in photography, video and mixed media/collage. While rooted in photographic practice, experimentation with materials, processes and composition is an essential ingredient in my work. I manipulate the still or moving images through juxtaposition or superimposition of figurative and abstract visual elements, language and sound into a newly constructed reality. Infused with humour, irony or a call for re-examination of the familiar or accepted ways of being, my work strives to capture the complex and conflicting nature of such themes as migration and urban geography, intimate relationships and family, work and production in a context which is both personal and universal. At times uncanny or otherwise unsettling, my work extends an invitation to the viewer to construct personal narratives by engaging with multiple layers of meaning vis-a-vis the viewer’s individual experience.
