Marcelo Jácome is a visual artist and was born in 1980 in Rio de Janeiro - city where he lives and works. Graduated in architecture and urban planning from Santa Úrsula University (RJ), he attended the School of Visual Arts of Parque Lage (RJ) having as teachers Gloria Ferreira, Iole de Freitas, João Magalhães and Luis Ernesto.

 

Resulting from a constructive will connected to an interest of a doing pratice, Marcelo's work is based on the notion of the expanded field. His experiments manifest themselves in an intersection between painting, architecture, drawing, and the object - a place that enables him to conceive spatial activations and immersive installations that, according to his logic, serve as tools of "deconditioning in space-time".

 

The artist considers the city as a research field and understands the urban mesh as an aesthetic instance. Using a material repertoire from popular commerce, he proposes formal, chromatic, literal and symbolic arranjements of the artifacts he decides to work with.

 

Nominated for the Pipa Prize (RJ) in 2014, he has participated in exhibitions in Brazil and abroad.  His work has been exhibited in spaces and institutions such as Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon (PT), Saatchi Gallery in London (UK), Brasilea Foundation in Basel (CH), Açude Museum in Rio de Janeiro (BR) and has participated in projects and collabs with brands and labels such as Nike/Nikelab, Royal Caribbean, FARM Rio, Cidade Matarazzo, Jardin D'acclimatation, 700'000 Heurs, Art Rio, among others.
