Marina Pinsky examines the way in which we can read images as material, spatial, and ideological models of the world. Using photography as a basis, she creates artworks in a range of media that expand lens-based ways of seeing into three dimensions, often using sculptural means. Her work has been shown in institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; WIELS, Brussels, Belgium; Vleeshal, Middelburg, Netherlands; SMAK, Ghent, Belgium; and Kunstverein Düsseldorf, Germany. Her work was included in the 13th Biennale de Lyon in 2015, the 1st edition of the Riga Biennial in 2018, and the 2nd edition of the Hammer Museum's biennial exhibition Made in LA in 2014. Dyed Channel, a solo presentation, opened at Kunsthalle Basel in 2016. In 2021, Pinsky presented a solo exhibition, Undertow at Simian, Copenhagen. Born in Moscow and raised in the US, Pinsky currently lives in Berlin and works in Brussels.
