Marianne Vierø (1979, Denmark) lives between Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Berlin. Vierø holds a BFA from the Rietveld Academie and is a recurrent guest and a determined devotee of the Oceans Academy Of Art. She has been a resident artist at Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam; Triangle Arts Association in NYC; and Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin.
In her practice Vierø often reworks already existing situations shifting the balance between material, method and form and hence suggesting a potential freed from prevailing conventions of interpretation. Acknowledging the materiality of an artwork as a driving force in creating meaning, she reanimates objects drawn from book collections and museum depots or even the workflow of a given method or workshop. The resulting works manifest as sculpture, installation, prints and artist books. Recent exhibitions include “Kunstnerbøger, Vildt Voksende” at Den Frie, Copenhagen; “Into Dust:Traces of the Fragile in Contemporary Art” at the Philadelphia Museum of Art; “Walking on the Wald Side” at Stadtgalerie Bern; “Glyph” at 427, Riga (solo); and “Great Transformation” at Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam (solo). In 2015 her work was included in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
