When I met Douglas Fransson in a small village in the south of Sweden, he had been unemployed for a while. He took me a long on a car trip through Ruda, where he had lived his entire life. He wanted to show me what had happened.
Born in 1957 in Ängelholm, Sweden. Based in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Marie is a multi media artist and works with video, sound, sculpture, text and painting. She has studied at the School of Design and Crafts and at Valands Academy of Art in Gothenburg. In 2001 her animations ”The Descendent from Mecklenburg” and in 2002 ”Does the noise in my head bother you” were part of Blick-New Nordic Contemporary Videoshow – an internationally touring video compilation arranged by Moderna Museet.
The video A Ruda Road movie has been shown in various contexts since it was produced for Virserums Konsthall in 2002 in her installation on Funky Business. Marie explores social situations and work to make visible what has been made invisible. The constructions of the Real and the borders towards what we define as the Unreal are current themes in her work.
