Maria Marshall is an English/ Swiss artist (born 1966, India). In the late 1990s, she became known for her video work, working mostly with children. Her recent works include “Thought” an alter ego character who can infiltrate the mind and replace thoughts. Based on meditation, this is a multimedia work which includes video, photography painting and sculpture.The general atmosphere of her films are dreamlike and agonizing. She takes on moral and psychological issues, using digital illusions and creating pieces that, projected as installations are striking for the spectator’s mind. The intention, she says, is not to shock, but to provoke the viewer through a seductive image, to ask himself what makes him feel uncomfortable.
