THE SKIN: A LAND OF DISCOVERIES
MOROCCO 2015 -2016
IFITRY Artist Residency. Performance by Sanae Arragas.
Marisa keeps inquiring and exploring her own territory in a very similar way, and broadens her series Bajo la Piel, el Vacio with new creations that stimulate our thinking. Her most recent piece, classified as a performance- installation by the artist, was executed during her stay at the Ifitry residence in Morocco. She works with a local model (Sanae Arragas) in a both accurate and intelligent way that allows her to dialogue with her context and nod at the rest of the world.Black and white are once again present on the symbolic world that Marisa Caichiolo builds with every work, Dermis León describes. The elegant and sober result consists on a woman that is wearing a long dress that works as skin, shield and defense; she is slowly hovered through the waters of a swimming pool, a metaphor of the sea that unites us and makes us equal. Her emptiness disturbs us; her messages produce more questions than answers. That is what her work and contemporary art are about: having doubts, reflecting on and approaching every object or artistic action.
