Don’t miss today’s Artist Studio Visit with @far_stepping! This afternoon at 2:00 pm, Marjan will be taking us through a tour of her home studio and answering your questions on Instagram Live.
Marjan Verstappen’s art practice involves installation, painting, drawing, photography and performance. Through these disciplines she explores biological, economic, and social interventions into natural systems, in order to understand their meanings, machinations, habits, and failures. She makes distinct bodies of work, often speculative in nature, that show us how we shape the land, how we grow and consume food, and how we live with one another.
Notable exhibitions of her artwork include Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood (Art Gallery of Ontario), INSTRUMENTA II (National Gallery of Indonesia, Jakarta) Atlas of Nowhere (Ashburton Art Gallery, New Zealand) and Know The Ways (Flux Factory, NYC). Marjan grew up in New Zealand and moved to Canada in 2012.
