Marnie Weber’s cast of unlikely characters includes a ballet-dancing bear, mythological animal hybrids, and ethereal “spirit girls,” all populating a surreal universe in the artist’s modern-day tableaux vivant.
The Los Angeles-based artist’s work appears on the cover of Sonic Youth’s album A Thousand Leaves and has been exhibited in cities from Milwaukee to Milan. Using a blend of video, installation, photography, sculpture, and live performance, Weber’s collages vividly illustrate haunting themes of isolation, longing, and personal renewal.
