Marielle Plaisir is a French-Caribbean multi-media artist who lives in the United States. She combines paintings, drawings, installations, videos, and performances to present intense visual experiences.
Even when Plaisir does not consider she's part of the current contemporary trend of art activism from the western perspective, she does, however; submerge herself within the borderline of philosophy and sociology, history and memory, to produce mnemonic devices. The series of paintings, installations, and performances explore the concepts of Meta / Count Narratives about domination and the construction of identity. In the end, she is a hybrid between activism and dreaming.
Her visual narrative becomes an act of multifaceted and interdisciplinary translation, manifested in a multitude of synonyms, symbols, and codes - by which she defines acts of domination as playing a major role in the reproduction of social relationships that is at the heart of globalization.
Her artistic outcome not only becomes an extraordinary research on materials, samples, and prototypes but a mirror of contemporary assumptions. Critical of the current “social atmosphere” through the rear-view mirror of history and symbols.
