Swedish artist currently based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
After graduating the Photography Department of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam 2007 Markus has actively been exhibiting both in the Netherlands and internationally.
Markus construct still lives and arrangements that predominantly end up as site-specific spatial pieces and as a photographic series.
In her work Markus uses the contexts of specific locations and objects to create a framework for a new narrative. The final result is sometimes almost abstract. A major force within this new framework is the influence of the human presence: factors like herself, or former inhabitants and owners. In a theatre like fashion she creates an alternate space where the margins between photography, painting and sculpture becomes intertwined.
