    The complexity and poetry of water and the under-water world are a decisive inspiration for Marie Griesmar’s art practice. She started diving at the age of nine and has been a committed observer of marine life ever since. Thanks to her diving skills, she sees water as a new space for creativity and creation. During her residency at KAUST, Griesmar investigated the aesthetics of underwater ecological constructions in the Red Sea. Inspired by the diversity of the organisms – their function and forms, she created a series of sculptures for her long-term underwater experiment. With her intervention, she aims to raise awareness to the importance of coral reef ecosystems. Griesmar holds an MA Fine Arts from Zurich University of the Arts. She currently lives and works in Lausanne, Switzerland.
