Liquid Anchors (Kunstfort Kasus 2020: Isabel Marcos – Part 1)
Return to overview

Is­abel Marcos (Spain 1986, working in Rot­terdam and Madrid) has been se­lected for Kunstfort Kasus 2020, an an­nual res­i­dency pro­gram that gives an artist or de­signer the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pand their studio work to (the sur­rounding area of) the Kunstfort for one year.

During Kunstfort Kasus 2020, she will re­search the ar­chi­tec­ture of the fort and con­sider ob­jects that me­diate our re­la­tion with large bodies of water, such as an­chors, chains and buoys. With Liquid An­chors, Is­abel will de­velop a se­ries of site-spe­cific sculp­tural in­stal­la­tions that ex­plore the no­tion of sinking from a hy­dro­fem­i­nist per­spec­tive.

Links is the first outcome of her research, a sculptural object that is half sinking half floating in the water surrounding Kunstfort. Links is made of oak, mahogany, ash, linden, nautical rope, linen cord, cork and other materials. It also contains custom made jewellery links made in collaboration with designer María Ramos.

Marcos graduated with a Master from the Dutch Art Institute in Arnhem and is PhD candidate at the UCLM University in Spain. More info:
