Myrthe van der Mark works at the intersection between visual art and performance. She unites a variety of media and disciplines in her work, with a focus on performance, sculpture and video. She uses actions and objects to spark direct, personal associations and wants to highlight a specific context. During her interventions, she expresses both present and absent elements, exploring and investigating different forms of communication.
