Marieke Zwart explores spaces of contact, through drawing, video and installation based works. Her works are build from socially engaged practices, reflecting on (art) historical and social problematics. Specific subjects of interest are the value of work and time - in and outside the art field- and the authority of the artist's hand.
Zwart is based in Amsterdam. She studied fine arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, 2005- 2009, and holds a MA Artistic Research of KABK The Hague. Her works were exhibited in Kunsthal Rotterdam (2016), 1646 The Hague (2015) and are part of the collection of Stadarchief Amsterdam and Buurtzorg Nederland.
