Marnie Weber’s multidisciplinary practice encompasses performance, film, video, sculpture, collage, music and costuming.  By combining her own mythology of creatures, monsters, animals and female characters with costuming on film and stage sets; she creates her own fictional narratives of passion, transformation, and discovery. Weber creates uncanny worlds that exist in a realm between fantasy and reality, and invites viewers into an exploration of the subconscious. Using fairytale-like imagery, she places women in positions of power and primacy creating a backdrop as a site of transformation and magic.

Weber’s work was the subject of a retrospective at Magasin in Grenoble France and a twenty-five-year survey exhibition at MAMCO (Musée d’art moderne et contemporain, Geneva). Most recently her work was exhibited at Simon Lee Gallery Hong Kong, Gavlak Los Angeles, as well as the 2020 Busan Biennale in South Korea. Additionally, she has had video screenings and performances throughout the U.S., Asia and Europe. Weber’s work is included in the permanent collections at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Musee d’art contemporain de la Haute-Vienne, FR, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Hammer Museum Los Angeles, FRAC Paris, and MAMCO (Musée d’art moderne et contemporain, Geneva), as well as many private collections.
