Charlott Markus

Charlott Markus is a Swedish visual artist based in Amsterdam (NL). Starting out as a university student of both psychology and theology in Lund (SE), Markus continued with an art education that took her to Amsterdam via Copenhagen. Markus graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 2007 and since then her work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the Netherlands and abroad.

Charlott constructs still lifes and arrangements that end up predominantly as photographic series and site-specific spatial works. Her works can be described as ‘extended still lifes’, in which she not only explores space, colour and form, but also investigates underlying relations and structures. Charlott weaves together personal narratives and their links to objects and materials, often using wood and textiles as carriers of meanings and memories.

Next to being a visual artist, Charlott Markus does photographic assignments, organizes events and curates exhibitions with themes close to her own artist practice.

Together with Nina Folkersma she curated SomeThings Hidden (2017-2018), a collaborative exhibition between Castrum Peregrini and Framer Framed.
