Mariechen Danz

Work from her oeuvre

“Mariechen Danz’s art takes as its starting point communication and the transmission of knowledge, placing the body at the center of her practice. In sculptures, drawings, costume designs, and performances she calls into question the expressive capabilities and incapabilities of language, the legibility and hierarchy of signs, and the primacy of Western conceptions of reason – proposing instead a new system of discourse and knowledge transmission that foregrounds, rather than suppresses, the subjectivity inherent in all human understanding. Danz’s works are furthermore activated through her staging and vocal performances. The human body thereby functions as the primary place of investigation for her work – the body as a metaphor, as origin and remains.”
