The concept artist Marianne Greve, Hamburg, works as a cross-over artist on
the linkage between science and art, the world of the rational and the world
of poetry. Her studies in biology and in arts give her understanding in either
field and the potential to use insights from both worlds for her works. She
uses diverse methods and materials for the optimal composition of her ideas
to realize a concept.
Animals become musical notes with her, growth processes - even of trees - are
her sculpture partners and many other real natural elements metamorphose when
entering her work.
She stands for a use of artistic techniques visualising the partnership of man
Greve was one of the members of the Laves - workshop 1990, elected for preparing
the application of Hannover for the EXPO2000.

numerous exhibitions in three continents since 1983,
