Marie Caye is a visual artist, performer and designer and a part of the former duo Arvid&Marie. Fascinated by the idea of technology as a strange synthetic realm, she explores different localities leading to collections of videos where humans disappear behind their tools or she searches the land for cyborg found material where the synthetic and the organic are indistinguishable. Her research probes at the grey zones, the obsolescence and the uncanny between humans, their environment and the produced matter.

Marie Caye is currently open for new collaborations and for artist residency invitations, get in contact here.
