Clarissa Tossin

Los Angeles-based Brazilian artist Clarissa Tossin uses video, installation, sculpture, and collaborative research to engage the suppressed counter-narratives implicit in the built environment. Like all remnants of material production, buildings and their components also bear the marks of economic forces, implicating them in local and global systems of exchange. Tossin explores alternate narratives that come to define a place, while preserving evidence of cultural difference, resistance, and transformation.
