Marina Andrijcic-Ojeda is a New York based multi-disciplinary artist of Croatian and Peruvian descent. Her practice stems from a heritage-based context in flux with the compulsion to describe and embody her surroundings. Her work provides a space for impulsivity and emotional response as a means of obtaining clarity. It includes intense physicality, dissociative action, methodical assembly and an obsession for the outcome of experimentation.
She is the co-founder and director of The Penitentiary, a collaborative site-specific series of exhibitions taking place in abandoned prisons, and has curated multiple international exhibitions. She is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York, having received the Silas. H. Rhodes award for excellence and achievement in Fine Arts upon graduation.
