Marie Wengler (b. 1992)
Marie Wengler is a Danish conceptual artist, creating art permeated withÂ issues related to human social roles, behaviour, and culture, clearly reflecting her BA in SociologyÂ and MA in Cognition and Communication. Art, in this case, becomes not only a creative outlet forÂ personal expression and exploration of oneself and oneâ€™s environment, but also a form ofÂ commentary aimed at the current sociopolitical phenomena. Marie is a third/fourth wave feministÂ and has been doing several lectures and performance acts about body ideals in the 21st century. Sheâ€™s been featured inÂ different magazines and has participated in various exhibitions. In her spare time sheâ€™s a passionateÂ skateboarder and hip-hop fan.
