Marie Flarup Kristensen (1992, born in Denmark) is based in Sweden. Her work grows from a mounting interest in occult, mythical and mysterious female existences from past and present. She explores how they are portrayed and who speaks them. In her search she uses photography, video, papier-mâché, fabric, stearin, paraffin, cardboard, caterpillars, butterflies, steel wire, mermaids, witches, sisters, mothers, vamps, nuns and so on and so on and so on.
