Non-knowledge, Laughter and the Moving Image presents: Marianna Simnett
- HFBK Hamburg, Aula
Marianna Simnett, Artist Talk
Marianna Simnett lives and works in London. Through performance, video, watercolour, and installation, she challenges how bodies are perceived and imagined. Uncanny narratives display the body as a site of dispute, performing surgical interventions and gestures of collapse and ecstasy. Solo exhibitions include the forthcoming Frans Hals Museum, Amsterdam (2019), Kunsthalle Zürich, Zurich (2019), as well as Copenhagen Contemporary (2019); the New Museum, New York (2018); Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (2018); Zabludowicz Collection, London (2018); Matt's Gallery, London (2017); Seventeen Gallery, New York and London (2016). Her work will also be included in forthcoming group exhibitions at Tai Kwun Contemporary, Hong Kong (2019); the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2019); Sadie Coles, London (2019).
Non-knowledge, Laughter and the Moving Image is an artistic research project led by Prof. Annika Larsson. The project is founded by the Swedish Research Council and done in collaboration with The Royal Institute of Arts in Stockholm and the HFBK, Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg.
