Marianne MarpLondon

Marianne is a visual artist, who goes under the name MarpLondon. Her work explores the status and identities of the individual in transit. She has a particular interest in altered attitudes and perspectives as well as the politics of identity and culture. Her artworks provide an interesting lens and offers thought-provocative insider/outsider viewpoints, which reflect both the personal and the collective state of being, locally and internationally.

Based on the philosophy of movement: What moves as a body returns as a movement of thought. The transitional state of mind reflects the actual movement of crossing borders: physically, mentally and virtually. It becomes a meeting point of the familiar and unfamiliar and gives birth to new ideas, new ways of seeing and understandings that are intimately tied to the signifiers of a global economy.

She seeks to develop a visual language that includes the excluded - with a disavowal, or even rejection of tradition and culture-narcissism, instead she finds a sheer joy in experimentation and anachronism with an unflagging optimism of why not  through a jubilation of fluidity, personal freedom and the well-being of the future of now. Her language collects, assembles and arranges identities as desired. It embraces diversity and creates mutual benefactorial connections between the genders, culturally and socially. It believes in the world-altering power of the bonds of love.

She is driven by intuition, curiosity and personal stories, motivated by connectedness, led by questions and the independent thought, and guided by empathy. She finds her path through confusion, by getting lost and finding meaning.

HOW WE PERCEIVE FOOD IS ALSO, HOW WE PERCEIVE CULTURE

FOOD is a symbol of home: TO TASTE US IS TO LOVE US Welcoming refugees, immigrants, other newcomers and locals alike to new tastes.

A Human Metropolis Introducing ‘the exotic; to each other, newcomers and locals alike, by replicating tastes and traditions that attach them to home as well as introducing them to new flavours. 

By sweeting the melting pot with food and love as that is what keeps us all alive, but also it is also what makes us human. With the arrivals of newcomers, the local cuisine is injected with a healthy dose of new flavours, curiosity and cultural understandings. The travellers, the visitors and the settlers are introduced to the tastes and smells of the local cuisine and their communities. 

The Act of Eating is an Act of Love is the Law of Attraction Food is a storyteller. Food connects us. Food gives us a sense of community and over time these communities shape our cities. They become the very essence of the fabric of a city.
