Marianne Holm Hansen works across media including writing, drawing, photography, video and new technologies. With a focus on interpretation, her work interrogates, employs, exploits and re-appropriates, organising systems, established methodologies, behaviours and habits, to question how we come to experience things as we do and, to what extent, an awareness of this can open up the potential for alternative experiences to form. Essentially, her practice is an attempt to both understand and challenge existing perceptions — to uncover and interrogate the structures 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.

Often responding to specific sites and situations , the development of the work itself includes aspects of independent studio practice, research, conversation and collaboration. The latter most often takes place through residencies, commissioned events or self-initiated projects that provides a forum for exchange, development and public assessment of work and its ideas. In line with this she has, for the past 10 years, consistently collaborated with diverse institutions, museums and galleries to produce workshops. participatory projects and events that enabel disussion, exchange and communnal knowledge production acoss disciplines and themes.

Marianne 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). Her work is shown internationally through exhibitions, presentations and screenings, and she has held research and production residencies in the UK, USA, France and Serbia. In 2011 she received an Arts Council England award to publish her first book project '100 things not worth repeating: on repetition' (LemonMelon, UK).
