Marie Munk (*1988, Denmark) is an interdisciplinary artist, working with sculpture, installation, video and performance. She is concerned with how technological innovation and productivity both characterize and dominate our environment, our behavior and our bodies. Munk is driven by creating alternative realities that balance the playful, imaginative and adorable with the eerie, disgusting and horrifying. Using silicone as a metaphor for the bodily, Munk creates abstract hypothetical scenarios, which questions current tendencies in society. With an uncanny visual language, she awakes the emotions that arise when we encounter something unknown and immediately abhorrent - awakening the unconscious and irrational in people.
