In her performative work Marina Dubia is concerned with strengthening our relationships of trust with other people and places, through risk-taking and physical engagement.
Over the next six months, through the performance project Flooding In, artist Marina Dubia will work her way into O—Overgaden’s DNA and out onto the streets of Christianshavn. With live performances, workshops, and interventions in O—Rooom, the large pillared hall on the ground floor of O—Overgaden, Dubia will question the institution’s location, importance, and visibility in the local area.
Dubia starts this long-term project with the new work The Voice of My Own Echo. At a distance—from both Portugal and Brazil—over the coming weeks she will send letters, essays, and found objects to O—Rooom while the space undergoes a major renovation. Dubia considers writing as a physical embrace of the exhibition space and a manifestation of several movements: her own journey between countries, the transformation of space toward a new identity, and the movements between writing and art making.
Dubia is concerned with strengthening our relationships of trust with other people and places, through risk-taking and physical engagement. Under the overall title Flooding In, from November 2022 to June 2023, she will carry out a series of performative interactions and workshops in and outside O—Overgaden, with the aim of interacting and communicating with the local environment and examining the physical boundaries that separate the institution from the outside world.
Marina Dubia (b. 1992, BR) graduated from the University of São Paulo and the Royal Danish Academy of Arts (MFA) in 2021 and studied Performative Arts at Forum Dança, Lisbon (2020). Dubia received the Poul Erik Bech Foundation art prize for her graduation performance “the margins of my limit” (Kunsthal Charlottenborg, 2021).
