Marie Von Heyl

Marie Von Heyl makes collage, sculpture, text, and video that relate to the resonance of past objects or of manifestations of the metaphysical such as the supernatural or the paranormal.

She is concerned with the poetic friction and productive misunderstandings that emerge when different models of reality and unreality collide, overlap or do not quite fit together. Interconnections are made throughout her works so that meaning and reference are augmented across media. Of particular interest are objects and imagery that serve as transmitters or mediators between different belief systems such as cult objects or esoteric paraphernalia. Von Heyl refrains from prescribing a viewpoint and instead adroitly encourages the audience to contemplate possibility, impossibility, reality, animism and absurdity.
