Marvin Touré (b.1991) is an Ivorian-American artist who uses fictional narratives and the objects of innocence as a vehicle to interrogate themes of love, loss, and memory. Touré received a B.A. in New Media Arts with a minor in Architecture from Southern Polytechnic State University (now Kennesaw State University) in 2014 and an M.F.A. in Fine Arts from The School of Visual Arts in 2016. Since 2016, Toure has completed several residencies and has consistently been included in group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions at The AC Institute in New York, New York (2018), and Haul gallery in Brooklyn, New York (2019). In 2020 Touré participated in the group show A Muffled Sound Underwater at LatchKey Gallery and was awarded both a Black Artist Fund grant and the Peter S. Reed Foundation grant for Mixed Media/Sculpture.

Peachwood Circle & Other Southern Gothics revisits the concept of spatial alchemy interrogated in my 2018 work, Topic 3: Consciousness. Physical objects informed by states of consciousness rested at the core of that inquiry. Themes such as nostalgia and memory, orbiting this project, reflect an exploration into the psychotemporal transformation of objects. The people, places, and things that exist in our mind’s eye change as time grants perspective. As we grow so to do our needs and the places that once provided refuge may now feel confining. Each of the six structures pulls from specific moments during my formative years in Georgia. In form and mood, I use these moments as the catalyst for mutation in each piece. Traditionally playhouses are spaces for reveries however, these sculptures act as repositories for memory. The vessel carries the memory, but how then does that memory affect and transform the vessel? Janie saw her life like a great tree in leaf with the things suffered, things enjoyed, things done and undone. Dawn and doom was in the branches.

— Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God
