Marie Gavois is an interdisciplinary artist, based in Duisburg, Germany and Stockholm, Sweden. Her artistry materializes issues of economic power and social policy in forms of  performing arts, text, music /sound and film. Organization in labor and independence interests her. Focus is on the  performative, in which she often integrates music, choreography and literary formations.

She’s a member and co-founder of the sound art and noise duo Sisterloops, a collaboration with composer Alexandra Nilsson since 2013.
She has an ongoing collaboration with the artist Michel Klöfkorn, since 2014.
2018 H a l f f l o o r, a collaboration with the artists Susanne Skog and George Kentros started.

2015-2018 Gavois was the chair woman of Fylkingen – new music and intermedia art in Stockholm. Fylkingen still serves both as a base to develop her own work as well as her role as an organizer.

2008-2012 she was an apprentice in SU-EN Butoh Company participating as a dancer and performer in many projects and exhibitions. During the four years she was as well part of the team of Frictions – international performance art festival. 2012, she interrupted the apprenticeship, to continue working independently as an artist and performer. Earlier she studied sculpture at Gothenburg school of art.
