Marius Engh’s work stems from an anthropological component. It analyses—through minimal expressions—every culture’s view of its most relevant events, building a new meaning. He works with the inherent potential of objects, the latent potential of things.
Engh entices us to rethink everyday objects—which he uses in some of his sculptures and installations—, using the analysis of their formal features as a starting point. His are visually formal and minimalistic expressions. Marius is interested in semiotics and sculpture’s inherent connotations, which we see in his work in the shape of volumes that relate to spaces.
His works can be found in some of the most significant institutional buildings in the world, such as The Mora Grecco Fondazione in Naples, the Nordea Art Collection in Oslo, the JPMorgan Chase Art Collection in New York and the Acid Cats Foundation in London. He recently exhibited at the Spazio Veda in Florence and the Munchmuseet in Oslo.
