MARINA FONT | EL CONTRATO
January 9 - February 27 2010
Dina Mitrani Gallery is pleased to present, El Contrato (The Contract), a series of photographs depicting a woman's journey of self discovery and identity. Although inspired by the artist's personal experience, many universal themes are presented that create a dialogue with the viewer. Gender, family, life cycles and memory are symbolically represented with elements charged with ritual and spirituality. The contract of loyalty with fears and prejudices of the past is broken and the woman becomes free to discover herself in the many roles within contemporary society.
Marina Font was born in Cordoba, Argentina in 1970. She studied design, sculpture, and photography at the Escuela de Artes Visuales Jose Malharro, Argentina and photography at Speos Ecole de la Photographie, Paris. She recently earned her MFA in photography from Barry University, Miami. This is her first solo exhibition in a gallery.
