Marianne Engel
b. 1972 (Wettingen, CH), lives and works in Mandach, CH and Zurich, CH

Marianne Engel explores spaces and landscapes like a psychiatrist fathoming the subconscious. She uses torches, streetlamps, camera flashes and long exposures to reveal colours and forms in the darkness, creating a membranous nether world in which everything seems to be alive with colour and presence.
