Artist statement

Marlene Bart deals in her artistic practice with the combination of scientific and artistic visual language. She focuses on the artistic potential of scientific -objects, -phenomena and illustrations in works such as anatomy models, taxidermy, cabinets of curiosities or encyclopedias.  The use of multimedia techniques allows her to combine a wide range of image content in a playful way, to refer to the historical dimension of scientific publications and to put them in a contemporary context.
