Marianne Heier 马瑞安•海儿

Marianne Heier (b. 1969) lives and works in Oslo. In her projects she often explores specific institutions ‘from the inside’. Her work can be seen as situated within an institution-critical artistic tradition; but Heier’s critique from the inside is more often the result of personal engagement, motivated by personal, lived experience, than of a calculated, strategic institution-critical praxis. Questions related to economy and the circulation of value are central in her work, and she has often used gifts as an artistic strategy.
Her recent solo exhibitions and projects in public space include ”Orfeus”, Kunstnernes Hus, Oslo (2013), ”Surplus”, Bergen kunsthall (2012), ”Jamais – Toujours,” Stenersen Museum, Oslo (2010); ”Saga Night”, Maihaugen, Lillehammer (2008); Pioneer, ROM, Oslo (2007); and Waldgänger, KORO, Hammerfest (2008). She has participated in group exhibitions at a number of institutions such as the National Museum for Art, Architecture and Design (2008 and 2014), Malmö art museum (2013), Trondheim Art Museum (2013), Kunsthall Oslo (2011); Hiap, Helsinki (2010); Overgaden, Copenhagen (2009); and Henie Onstad Art Centre (2009).
