The dualism of disagreeing and agreeing
is always present and forms the centre/quadratic of Marieke Coppens' artistic point of view.
This comes into shape in her work by mixing cause and result, form and content to be able to question unambiguity.
But the most important influence in Marieke Coppens' artistic motor is the law of conservation of energy; what goes in must go out.
Marieke Coppens' work is divided in a triangle, in this triangle each point has its owns specifications.
Choosing a triangle is a way of enlarging an artistic freedom by restricting it.
Performances are predominantly used.
The three points of a multi-shaped triangle are:
1. Core-series; 2. Anti-works; 3. Text based work.
