ADA MARINO

DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY AND VISUAL ACTIVISM

ABOUT ADA

Ada Marino is an Italian artist based in Wales. Her practice focuses above all on the recollection of past events, memories and traumas that re-emerge, passing by a deep canal of introspection, manifesting a cynical surrealism. Often her disturbing imagery attempts to conceptualise the repulsion/attraction effect and introduces the concept of revaluation of ugliness almost contemplating it. She creates a variance with the “insubstantial” aesthetic photography form and subverts the common way to photograph, see and perceive things, celebrating the beauty in the truth and imperfections of life fragments
