Marianna Maruyama works with the body and voice as primary agents in her practice. She uses translation as an artistic method to reveal the complexity of multilingualism, interpreted to encompass not only verbal language, but also culture, image, sound, and movement. She has tutored at the Dutch Art Institute, guest lectured at The Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam, and is an artist-researcher at the invitation of the Sedje Hémon Foundation in The Hague. Recent exhibitions and performances include: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (NL), The Jewish Historical Museum Amsterdam (NL), The Deep Splash (LT), Manifesta 11 (CH), and documenta14 Parliament of Bodies (DE). Selected publications include: Performing Security (The Fifth Season, 2019); Farocki’s Living Room (Harun Farocki Institut, 2018); Translation as Method (Kunstlicht, 2017), Three Movements (Casco/DAI, 2013).
