Lives and works in New York
Born Lebanon | 1976
In every field, Marya has introduced new ways of thinking and radical contributions to the renewal of creativity and techniques. Her works initiate a profound questioning of the boundaries of the artwork and art practice, challenging the status of art as a privileged object. Conceived out of a desire to shift traditional methods and materials toward less concrete forms and objects. Themes such as physical and emotional pains, anger, ecstasy, and social taboos, are the visual metaphors characterized by her work. Always in search of a new iconography of the human reality Kazouns’s work relates to images that are less perceptual and more mentally formulated. In experimental performances, illustrations, glass, assemblages and mixed media installations, her images migrate and transform through different vehicles of support and language, which conveys ideas or concepts to the viewer without limitations serving to share knowledge and the experience of life.
