Director Statement

Marianne works with installation and film. Her focus is on undocumented histories related to people, architecture and language. Her current work revolves around the history of water in Egypt. Her work is based on archival material she collects as well as texts and books.
She’s concerned with narratives related to water and the intriguing story behind the establishment of oceanography and marine science education in Alexandria. Her conversations with scientists and urban planners add believability to the fabricated narratives she creates. She finds possibilities for creative additions, that transform prescribed conventional narratives into a boundless by time artwork. Her projects shed light on environmental consciousness through artistic narratives and methodologies.
