Lunchbox Series: Women in Public Art: Why It Matters
Marit Benthe Norheim was born in 1960 in Norway and currently lives and works in Denmark.
"I am interested in art which is placed into - or is a part of - a context, and which can be experienced on many levels, not just through the intellect and thoughts. This is why working in public space has interested me so much. Producing a story - my own selected parts set in relation to the site specific - has been the driving force of large parts of my production."
Ms. Norheim will discuss mobility, flexibility, social participation, direct involvement and collaborations, and her international work as a woman in the public art realm.
