Marieke Zwart (1987, NL) is an artist based in Amsterdam. Her drawings and installations often stem from a collaborative and socially informed practice. She is interested in definitions of empowerment, dependence and the act of looking. After BA/Fine Arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy (2009) and MA/Artistic Research at the KABK (2015), she was a resident at the Rijksakademie (2017-18). Zwart worked with mental health care clients in residencies Het Vijfde Seizoen (Den Dolder, NL) and IBB (Curacao) and collaborated with Buurtzorg for a series of Visiting Nurses in the Netherlands.
In 2021 Zwart founded 'depend on me', a collaborative research group for both professional as non-professional artists in Amsterdam. Several artists of the group then founded Good Martha in 2023, a new foundation to support collaborative art projects.
Her works are part of the collection of Stadsarchief Amsterdam and Buurtzorg Nederland and have been exhibited at: 1646 (the Hague), 3331 Arts Chiyoda centre (Tokyo, Japan), Museum Dr. Guislain (Gent, Belgium), Kunsthal (Rotterdam), IBB (Curacao), Fotodok/Casco (Utrecht), Ateliers '89 (Aruba), Cargo in Context (Amsterdam), Framer Framed (Amsterdam), AT5 and Amsterdam Museum.
