hello world.

martina morger is a performance artist who also works with multimedia. she reflects on femininity as a device, and claiming space as a political body. Through her work, one discovers an engagement with the limitations of individual freedom in regard to technologies. her main practice is inspired by code, bodies and care. her work is primarily concerned with womxn’s placement within society, but also queerness in regards to cybernetical hybridisation. Exploring female and queer voices – or lack thereof - domesticity, repetitive action and hidden labour she works primarily with performance art and enjoys investigating the borders to other media. her embodiment of different personas speaks to fluidity and its possible societal implications.
