Marinka Limat is a performance artist. At the centre of her work is the interpersonal. Her practice often moves at the limits of the performative realm: she walks long distances by foot in the name of art, she brings her work into the everyday life of people and sees encounters as moments of art. In 2017 she received the mobility scholarship from the canton Freiburg for her third Kunst-Pilger-Reise (Kassel-Athens). In 2019 she realized the project ESCALE-Aktionsraum, which was the winning entry of the competition “Kunstplätze” of the city of Bern. She studied at the Hochschule der Künste in Bern and at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee. Today she lives in Fribourg, where she was born in 1983.
