Marit Westerhuis (b. 1992, The Netherlands) is an artist living and working in Amsterdam. The work of Marit Westerhuis is impregnated by transhumanism and questions the common borders between machines and the human body. As a result, she makes installations based on sensitive and digital data which offer a new mapping of the body and emotions influenced by technology and robotics.
In her work, the rational thinking about progress that technology conveys is accompanied by what is usually considered its counterpart: occultism, sacrifice and the supernatural.
