Marthe Ramm Fortun

Marthe Ramm Fortun (b. 1978, Oslo) is based in Oslo and currently assistant professor at Norwegian National Academy of Fine Arts. Departing from site-specific texts, Fortun’s performances use body, language and elusive sculptural boundaries to inscribe closed off institutional spaces with persistent and poetic feminisms. Since completing her studies at the New York University in 2008, Fortun has shown work in a variety of institutions and contexts throughout Norway and abroad, including BOZAR and Gladstone Gallery, Brussels, The Munch Museum, UKS, Kunsthall Oslo, Kunstnernes Hus, and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Oslo, Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, Bærum, Bruce High Quality Foundation, Sculpture Center and Performa, New York, and KW Institute of Contemporary Art, Berlin.
