Born 1962 in Sliedrecht, the Netherlands. She studied graphics and painting at the St. Joost Academy of Fine Arts in Breda. During her studies,she began working with photography and she graduated with, among other things, a video installation. After her studies, in 1986, she moved to Italy, where she returned to painting. In 1989 she co-founded the Italian publishing house Apeiron, directing the production and book design. In this environment,she became involved with the use of computers, and she began applying digital techniques also in her artwork. Since 1998 she has dedicated herself to using the new media arts for her expression.
Until 2013 she lived in Sant’Oreste in Italy. After that,she moved to Berlin where she lives today and works as a freelance artist and web designer.
Maria Korporal’s artistic production includes video art, interactive projects, installations. Her multimedia work has been designed using a wide variety of techniques. The narrative aspect, both personal and social, plays a major role in her work and, together with the directness of the images and the sounds, leads to a great participation of the viewer. Her interactive installations in particular invite the viewer to participate. In her work she plays with virtuality and reality, with undergone and artificially generated experiences. Most of her projects deal with social and environmental issues.
She is an active member of the Verein Berliner Künstler (Association of Berlin Artists) and of the artists’ group Group Global 3000 – Art and other sustainabilities in Berlin. Her videos are distributed in Italy by VisualContainer, Milan.
Her works have been shown and awarded in various exhibitions all over the world.
