Marcelo is a creative practitioner who develops works of art in collaboration with community partners. He creates site-responsive works that activate dialogue, interaction, visual impact and community cohesion. His interests lay in neighbourhood narratives, hidden mythologies, psycho-geography, and outdoor works.
He is a London-based creative practitioner born in New York City to parents who emigrated from Chile. His work explores interaction, public spectacles, social systems, the body politic and urban imagination. His practice can be understood in four layers that mutually compliment and inform each other: collaborative making, psycho-geographic explorations, visual arts and social art.
Marcelo’s commitment to social engagement and site-specific work has led him to design and deliver a range of works such as parades, street banners, outdoor performances, sound installations, audio walks, circus, and immersive theatre.
