thinking through making

Marina Jacob is a German artist based in Frankfurt am Main. Her practice includes sculpture and large format drawings, sometimes with performative elements. Marina tests the potential of material imagination as a hybrid space and a catalyst.  Her works are in equal measure Informed by philosophical, sociological, musical theories and by experimentation with ethnic crafts.
