Marlo A. Koch is an artist writing texts and a writer making art. Her text and video work is driven by a desire to explain a bodily anxiety through queerness, poetry, failure, and equilibrium. Her work exists in a friction between the perceived and the real body, the process of which is a slipping around, a scooping down, and a singing out. She is currently a 2nd-year MFA candidate in studio arts at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
