Peripheral ARTeries meets

Cora Marin Lives and works in Berlin and in Barcelona Adressing the viewers to a multilayered visual experience, visual artist Cora Marin's work walks us through the liminal area in which imagination and perceptual reality find a consistent point of convergence. In her Kudihohola series that we'll be discussing in the following pages, she drew inspiration from the music of Chalo Correia and JoĂŁo Mouro to create an insightful combination between words and images, capabe of triggering the viewers' perceptual and cultural parameters.

The notion of beauty is not something that concerns me when I work. However I am indeed convinced that the way I make art is tighly related to my cultural background and the experiences gathered while traveling. It's important for me to remember where I came from, but I don't want to let that be what defines me. I sort of reinvent myself whenever I'm in a 78
