Marianne MarpLondon is a visual artist who lives in between two cultures, which she sees as a state of inter-being in itself – so it comes naturally to her to manoeuvre with ease in and out of these spaces. Not only does she find herself at home in this third space, but it also gives her a sense of belonging. When viewing her art, the observer will find a strong sense of anachronism that refigures and plays with the way we see and understand the world around us with a desire to push and challenge. Her work is driven by an insatiable curiosity and fuelled by an endless fascination with personal and social identities. This includes cross-cultural parallels, the space between modernity and tradition and the relationship between man and woman.
Her collection ‘Icons of Modern Civilisation’ was represented exclusively by Lahd Gallery and was shown at A Place in Between in 2016. MarpLondon is currently living and working in London.
