Marita Bullmann

Marita Bullmann is a performance, installation and photography artist.
Lives and works in Essen, Germany.

Within my work I examine situations that are present in our everyday life but not perceived consciously.
Small, delicate moments illustrate how I detect the world around me.
Materials are decontextualized from their original use and provided with new different characteristics.

I explore moments in which the intrinsic context is transferred which communicates a gaze, an opinion as well as values, tempers and peculiarities.
My intention is to affect normal visual and perceptual mechanisms far away from their cultural coinages and to create a new ‘space’ that reminds us of how different we perceive things. I’m searching for images and actions which manifest the beauty of now and its simplicity.

Om liveart_dk was founded in 2004 in Copenhagen to promote the discussion, documentation and development of live art in Denmark. The organisation is equally inspired by the imaginative and entertaining English Live Art tradition as by the theoretical and political German theatre tradition. We have organised 10 large international festivals of Live Art for kids and adults since 2004, and over 40 discussion events, books, video series, symposia and more in the field of live art, performance art, art criticism and documentation. We collaborate with theatres, music venues, art museums and festivals in Denmark and internationally.
