MARINA FONT | IMPRINTED
September 10 - October 28, 2011
Dina Mitrani Gallery is proud to present Marina Font's second solo exhibition in the gallery, Imprinted. In this new photographic series, Marina Font utilizes images and installations illustrating concepts of memory, tradition, and the experience of adopting a new homeland. The objects chosen for her work denote nostalgia and the poetry of conjoining the past and the present. Although the work is inspired by
the artist's personal experiences, the issues of identity and how the human mind stores its memories are universal.
Marina Font was born in Cordoba, Argentina in 1970 and moved to Miami fifteen years ago. She studied visual arts at the Escuela de Artes Visuales Jose Malharro in Argentina and focused on photography at Speos Ecole de la Photographie in Paris. She earned her MFA in photography from Barry University in Miami two years ago and lives in Miami Beach with her husband and three sons.
