Marion Baruch is a significant artist whose work has recently been rediscovered for its true worth. Born in 1929 in Romania, she now lives and works in Italy. Baruch graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design of Jerusalem and the Accademia di Belle Arti of Rome.
She proposes a feminine, socially engaged, and audacious work which constantly aims to question its own status by exploring endlessly new dimensions sometimes found at the margin of the art scene through the use of performance, installation, and sculptures characterized by political and poetical anti-establishment positions.
Since the end of the 2000s, Marion Baruch has made a major artistic shift by taking an interest in left-overs of fabric from the textile industry. From this material, she has created artworks that are both sculptures and pictorial compositions.
She notably emphasizes the way the fabric reconstructs the space when it is hung. At the beginning of this new artistic cycle, she conceived her artworks by spontaneously quoting art history, from painting to more conceptual works.
