Marianne Holm Hansen works across disciplines to both understand and challenge existing perceptions to uncover and undo the structures, behaviors and habits through which we are taught to operate, think and respond, and, in turn, to practically test how they may be used and applied, differently, to generate new ways of thinking and doing. She has a particular interest in how language use and convention may be exposed, re-written, re-appropriated or re-claimed to open-up, rather than close-down, meaning. Her current work is considering the potential of the pause — and the act of pausing, on- and off-the-page — as interruption, time and space for the transformation of habitual patterns, thoughts and actions.

Her work is formed through her approach to
arts practice as means to think-through and work-throuh, and her continuous engagement with interdisciplinary research, often on/with/in dialogue with diverse communities. As a result, measurable outcomes from her practice overall includes text-based works, publications, drawings, photographs, installations, workshops and live events, presented internationally in gallery and non-gallery contexts alike.

Marianne Holm Hansen studied at the Fynske Academy of Fine Art, (Denmark), the International Center of Photography (New York) and completed an MA in Interactive Media: Critical Theory and Practice, at Goldsmiths (University of London). She has held fellowships and research residencies in the UK, USA, Finland, France and Serbia and received numerous awards, including from Arts Council England and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, New York. Her
publications include '100 things not worth repeating: on repetition' (2011, LemonMelon, UK); 'Void As (A) - A Proposition' (2020, London, UK); and the recent monograph 'Typing (Not Writing) – LINES' (Plaugolt SatzWechsler, Germany, and Timglaset Editions, Sweden, 2020).
