Statement

Lena Marquise is a interdisciplinary artist. ​ ​Her work focuses on gender, sexuality, ethics and morals. She uses art direction within installations to add an element of static sculpture – she conveys tension with her choice of position and blocking, as well as the placement of the audience. In concept as well as in practice, Marquise focuses on the duality of creating works as the voyeur, as well as the exhibitionist. Marquise is currently living in New York. Her recent work has shown at Art Basel Miami 2014 and was publicized worldwide for recording artist, Usher, being involved in her performance and installation "Body As Commodity" when he participated by charging his iphone with a cable attached to her vagina.
