Marnie Slater (b. 1980, Aotearoa New Zealand) is a visual artist who lives in Brussels. Marnie’s work engages with multiple formats, including sculpture, collaboration, writing, performance, painting and installation, which she utilizes to examine the deliciously slippery lives of languages, genders and bodies. Alongside her solo activities, Marnie is part of the All the Cunning Stunts, co-curator of Buenos Tiempos Int., co-editor of Girls Like Us magazine, and an occasional editor of books. Marnie was a core tutor for the Master of Voice program at the Sandberg Instituut, Amsterdam (2016–18).
