Marisa Schlichthorst

Born in Germany; living and working in Melbourne, Australia.

Photographer, artist, social scientist and compulsory researcher. My work is driven by an interest in understanding human identity and how identity is influenced by society, personal expectations and perceptions. In constant change we interact with the wider world around us yet we seem stagnant in our responses to the world and not individual after all.

I am motivated by what I see around me. My artistic expression is an attempt to make sense of the things I don't understand. My works are socially critical, self-critical, questioning habits, sometimes raw, sometimes funny, sometimes seductive sometimes revolting but I hope always entertaining and inviting to contemplation and self-reflection for those who dare.
