Portrait        website:

Marie Gavois is an interdisciplinary artist and performer, based in Dortmund and Stockholm. Her artistry materializes issues of economic power and social policy in forms of performing arts, text, music /sound and film.
Poetic politics, organization and independence interests her.
Focus is on performance, in which she skillfully integrates music and noise dance as well as literary formations. Her work is many times minimalist and reduced to the essentials. She’s a member of the sound art and noise duo Sisterloops, active member of Fylkingen - new music and intermedia art, and a user at the Electronic Music Studio, EMS in Stockholm.

2015-2018 Gavois was the president of Fylkingen - new music and intermedia art in Stockholm. Fylkingen serves both as the base to develop her own work as well as her role as an organizer.

2012-2015 she acted as chair person of the studio collective and gallery Detroit, Stockholm.

2008-2012 she was an apprentice in SU-EN Butoh Company participating as a dancer and performer in many projects and exhibitions. During the four years she was as well part of the team of Frictions - international performance art festival. 2012, she interrupted the apprenticeship, to continue working independently as an artist and performer (disconnected from the Butoh training and concept, left is its memory..). Earlier she studied sculpture at Gothenburg school of art.
