Biography

 

For the last thirty years, Javier Marín has developed a solid career as a visual artist, holding over ninety solo exhibitions and more than two hundred collective shows in Mexico, the United States, Canada, and several countries in South and Central America, Asia and Europe.

 

 

The human as a whole is the center around which Javier Marín’s artwork revolves; he shows living human beings, palpitating, with bodies that present themselves with dignity, proud yet hurt and decomposed. Not fragile, but strengthened individuals. On their skin and flesh they carry the marks and scars

of their own existence: a continuous confrontation of apparent opposites, a de– and reconstruction of fragments. His choices of materials as well as his working process, which leaves evident marks on each piece, are substantial elements of the way he conceptualizes his work.

 

The sculptor makes a conscious transgressive action. For the pieces that he has created, he transgressed the matter by forcing opposing material to coexist

together in a single piece. He transgressed the work of others by pulverizing and adding it to the mixture. He transgressed his own created pieces, to load the final object not only with the combination of different materials, but also with all the meanings that he himself has given them. He transforms the immutable into the mutable. The result is: materials are evidence of this entire conceptual charge that consolidates the work of more than three decades of artistic research. The perfect synthesis: materiality as idea.

 

 

Some of his exhibitions have been shown in venues such as the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma Testaccio, Rome, Italy (2013–2014); Les Musées royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, Brussels (2010); Museo di Palazzo Reale, Milan, Italy (2008–2009); Bass Museum of Art, Miami Beach, the United States (2006–2007); Museo Colonial and Museo Santa Clara, Bogota, Colombia (2006); Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Oaxaca, Mexico (2006); Museo Amparo, Puebla, Mexico (2005); Espace Pierre Cardin, Paris, France (2000); Museo del Palacio de Bellas Artes, Mexico City (1996); Museo de Arte Moderno, Monterrey, Mexico (1993); Museo de Arte Alvar y Carmen T. de Carrillo Gil, Mexico City (1990), among many others. Most recently, as a revisión to the thirty years of his career, the exhibition Corpus Terra took place at the Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso and the Palacio de Iturbide in Mexico City (2015-2016).

 

 

His work forms a part of important public and private collections in Mexico and abroad, including those of Museo de Arte Moderno in Mexico City, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Monterrey, the Collection of the Mexican Finance and Public Credit Ministry, Museo del Barro in Caracas, Venezuela; Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Boca Raton Museum of Art, Latin American Museum in Long Beach, the Blake-Purnell Collection in New York, the Costantini Collection at Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, the Ersel Collection in Torino and The Prince of Monaco Collection, among others.

 

 

Javier Marín has carried out projects and exhibitions in public spaces, such as the Lange Voorhout plaza, The Hague (2010); Piazza del Duomo, Chiesa e Chiostro di Sant’Agostino, Pietrasanta (2008); Casa de América, Madrid (2007); Convent of San Francisco de Asís, Havana (2006); Plaza Juárez and former Church of Corpus Christi, Mexico City (2005); Church of Saint Catherine, Vilnius (2003); and the Espace Bellevue, Biarritz (2001). He has been invited to show his monumental pieces in major international events, such as the Exhibition for the World Art Treasures at the China Art Museum, Shanghai (2012). On two different occasions, during the Venice Art Biennale, he installed a piece at Larga Ascensione next to Piazza di San Marco (2001) and a monumental installation inside Sala San Tommaso, Campo dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo (2003); for the main facade of Casa de America in Madrid he created the monumental piece Chalchihuites (2008).

 

 

He has received various prizes and great distinctions, including the First Prize in the Third Beijing International Art Biennale (2008); and he was awarded the commission to design and build the main altarpiece for the Zacatecas baroque Cathedral (World Human Heritage) of the Capital City Zacatecas, Mexico (2010). In recognition of his traveling exhibition De 3 en 3, that toured throughout seven European cities, the Queen of the Netherlands awarded him with the title of Knight of the Order of Orange-Nassau (2009).
