Rooted within the field of graphic and book design, Marie Artaker’s work is based on research and a conceptual approach. In viewing the book as exhibition space, her practice focuses on creating reading experiences that aim to offer divergent paths of accessing texts and interpreting images. Next to a strong interest in forms of practice-based research and the archive and library as curatorial spaces, her academic research revolves around unruly formats that challenge mediation and categorisation, such as the note(book), distinguished by its preliminary, yet documented form.
