Marie Munk has been interviewed by Interalia Magazine about her practice, her Magic Wand performance at Code Art Fair and her dual-exhibition with Stine Deja, Synthetic Seduction, originally shown at Annka Kultys Gallery.

This tension has only been reinforced in the virtual world where our minds can go wandering, without the flabby gravity of the body to hold it back.
