Marco Bizzarri (b. 1988, Chile) is a visual artist graduated from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
Bizzarri's work revolves around notions of memory, territory and a constant concern for the natural environment. The research processes and methodologies are subordinated to the context, so that touring the landscape and listening to the human testimony is fundamental in the realization of each work.
In wandering through each new territory, I gather and register exogenous elements that alter the natural order of the landscape. These elements are always linked to a break, a fragment of memory or loss, reflecting the conflictive relationship we have established with the environment.
His work has been exhibited in Chile, as well as abroad. Recent solo exhibitions include Unearthed at Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop (London,2020) Incuria which took place in Galeria Animal (Chile, 2019) and Plan de cierre ( Chile 2017), which gathered the work developed at Centro ARC, a new space for artistic residencies that he founded together with Rosa Velasco in the Humboldt archipelago.
