Marieta Campos Gisbert, Valencia 1984 is an artist and cultural mediator. She currently lives and works in Berlin.

She recently completed her Master's degree Art in Context at the UdK - Universität der Künste Berlin with honours (2021). Graduated in Fine Arts at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (2007), she did part of her artistic studies at Anotati Scholi Kalon Tehnon in Athens.

His work, which is heterogeneous in approach, between documentary and conceptual art, is defined by an ingenious sensitivity in the presentation of its themes and the experimental use of different artistic disciplines.

The central point of her work is the interaction and collaboration with other collectives in society.

As a cultural mediator, she has specialized in accessibility and inclusion projects in cultural contexts.

Since 2012 she has been a member of the management team of the atelier of Thikwa Werkstatt für Theater und Kunst, a workshop for the artistic professionalisation of people with functional diversity in Berlin.

Her latest challenge is the coordination, together with Amanda Robledo, of the diverse research team INARTdis - Berlin. INARTdis is a European cooperation and research project to promote inclusion in cultural spaces.

"Marieta offers stimuli.
She reveals and presents society with the most unorthodox ways under her own vision and experience, talking always about interesting situations.

An analysis of the work of Marieta reveals the great subtlety with which she deals with everyday issues and familiar topics. A vision between poetic and 'brutista' like marginal art, lets us travel through the universe of an eclectic artist, who works with different materials.
Materials ranging from found objects , the recycled, and those that she herself created with variables medias such as sculpture , drawing, photography, video, ready-made, collage, etc.
A work in continuous evolutionary process , where fresh ideas are expressed through a wide range of plastic and aesthetic resources.

Different elements with which she get inspired and she composes, contain a strong emotional charge, such as own hair, scrap rusty metal, old pictures, small fetish objects, and many others.
In some cases we also find a great interest on the ephemeral , capturing moments, or storing living things as organic materials , with which she later works .
These objects contain stories on their own, themselves are full of experiences , but she takes them further, combining them to form new meanings and giving them an even more emotional and poetic character.

On her work, normally non- narrative, she reveals a world of dreams where live mixed memories, experiences, critical views, friendships, loves, fears, struggles, and much tenderness.

Marieta's work breathes positive energy."
