Cinthia Marcelle

  • Cinthia Marcelle produces video works that address the mundane and attempt to make sense out of everyday chaos. In her practice, commonplace rhythms, patterns and events are an infinite resource of meaning. Her work frequently reimagines everyday “movements” such as traffic as highly formal and sequenced orchestrations. Through a time-intensive and mathematically precise editing process, she re-choreographs disordered movement, using video and photography to document the effects that her interventions have on the usual order of things. Her compositions are at once satirical and lighthearted, and her actions create situations that challenge our notions of conventional behavior by introducing humorous coincidences and connections. Marcelle's work has been part of significant group exhibitions including New Museum Triennial, New York (2012),Tate Modern Level2, London (2012) and 29ª Bienal de São Paulo (2010). Her solo exhibitions include Pinchuk Art Center, Kiev (2011), Galeria Vermelho, São Paulo (2011), Camberwell College of Arts, London (2009) and Sprovieri Gallery, London (2009).
