It is a great pleasure to be able to invite you to re—a solo exhibition by Marie Thams.

In re Thams presents a new installation combining sound, text, video and sculptural utterances. The exhibition is a reaction to the imbalance Thams experiences in the valuation of reproduction in relation to the economic and professional production of the late capitalist society that we currently preside over. This being a society that is dominated by the working market's norms and has high expectations of the worker's production and returns. In re Thams deals with this experience through her own voice and reproductive body coupled with sculptural utterances, which together make an encompassing installation specifically designed for c4 project's space.

Marie Thams (b. 1982, DK) holds an MFA from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Visual Arts, Copenhagen, 2011, and a BA (Hons) from Goldsmiths, London, 2009. Thams' work is driven by questions around our working culture's dictation of identity and artistic value, and the relation between biological body and social/political status, for example. Her work often includes a combination of video, sound, text and sculptural and performative elements, resulting in larger installations. Most recently she has had a special focus on spoken, poetic text—both as independent work, as part of larger installations and as publications.
