Born in Trieste on November 12, 1940, she studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice, formed by Giuseppe Santomaso. In the 1960s, Apollonio began to design illusionist visual experiences. By choosing primary forms such as the circle, in this exhibition, the artist studies his structural possibilities to be able to make the work active.

Along with other members of the kinetic movement, Marina Apollonio shares the desire for depersonalized art, in opposition to the concept of expressive abstraction. It uses modern industrial materials to create structures calculated in such a way that they transform into space.

In many works, the viewer has to rotate a circular plane alternately painted with black and white stripes. This movement causes a strong optical effect and plays with the viewer's gaze.

Marina Apollonio is one of the most important kinetic artists with works exhibited in the world's greatest collections such as the Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the Hermes Foundation, the Museum of Modern Art in Turin, the New Museum in New York, the MACBA of Buenos Aires as well as the Villa Datris Foundation in France. Interest in his work continues to grow, as shown by his participation in group exhibitions such as Dynamo at the Grand Palais or, more recently, Vertigo at Mumok in Austria. The Artefacts website also highlights this growth, thus accompanying the other women artists enjoying these times a valuation of their work.
