Lundebye , Anette
Manum, Talleiv Taro
Attended Kunsthøgskolen i Bergen in 1999-2004. Marius Mørch entered the art scene during Høstutstillingen in 2001 with the video work ”Disguises”. For this work he received “Den franske prisen” (The French Award) which included a study visit in France. For the first time, the Museet for Samtidskunst (The Museum of Contemporary Art) chose to acquire a work from this exhibition, and Mørch was thus among the youngest artists in the museum’s collection. The technique that Mørch repeatedly has employed in his work is sampling and manipulation of scenes of violence from well known American films that he cuts and assembles in new sequences. The film sequences often appear in a repetitive and reiterated pattern that supports and amplifies the theme of violence.
