Myrthe van der Mark (1989, NL) is an artist, writer and performer. She lives and works in Antwerp, Belgium.
Her work is a dynamic performance-collage founded on improvisation and associative leaps. An experimental and playful relation to production is reflected in the collages. It is visible in the 20 performances she made with her performance duo CMMC, in collaboration with Céline Mathieu, over the past six years, which are collections and interpretations of found visual, textual and choreographical material. But also in the paper collages and in self-edited documentation videos in which her appearance is that one of an ambiguous protagonist.
Who says what and how, who embodies what are key questions for a viewer, who is left deciphering intentions, relations and emotions.
Myrthe obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts at ArtEZ Academy of Art & Design Arnhem (NL) in 2012. She has been doing an additional Bachelor program in Drama-Directing at RITCS Brussels. She is currently in her second year of the Master in Theatre at Toneelacademie Maastricht.
