Anja Marais
Anja Marais is a forager. She saunters through the world collecting stories, earth-talks, and myths. Gathered from frayed memories and faded auditories. She seeks objects left behind and forgotten with a leitmotiv of history.

Marais explores exposed objects, systems, and ideas after disintegration. She brings these weathered objects and subjects together as hybrids in her studio to be reinvented into sculptures, installations, video work, photography, and poetry. This process revives, transforms, and reinterpret, leading to a new understanding of cultural phenomena of false supremacies and fragmented heritages. She calls this process the 'Beginning of the End to a Re-beginning'.

She has a zero-waste studio practice where she works with cyclical earthy materials like clay, lime, stone, maize, and found objects. Uninterested in the boundary between the human and the nonhuman world her work states that all things–inanimate and animate–contain metamorphoses of personhood. It is impossible not to hear the world in its objects.
