Marcellvs L.

Marcellvs L.’s videos and sound installations create a tangible, physical staging of time and slows it down by setting commonplace objects in a state of perpetual duration, which seems to detach them from reality. The physicality produced by the sound and rhythm of the films makes the videos into passages for the viewer; the films turn into spaces of transit for the confrontation of possibility.

Marcellvs L. (b. 1980, Belo Horizonte) lives and works in Berlin. He has participated in numerous biennials internationally, including the 16th Biennale of Sydney; 9th Lyon Biennale of Lyon; 27th São Paulo Biennial. Museum exhibitions include Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon, Lyon; Helsinki Art Museum, Helsinki; Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo; ICA, London; n.b.k, Berlin; Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; New Museum, New York; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; ZKM Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologien, Karlsruhe; and Museum of Modern Art, São Paulo.
