Marie Shannon is an Auckland-based artist who works with photography, video and drawing. Her work has always been concerned with her immediate surroundings, and has at times addressed the work of other artists. Following the death of her partner, the artist Julian Dashper, in 2009, she has been cataloguing his art works and archive in their shared Auckland studio. It is from this process that she has gathered the material for her text-based videos.
Shannon majored in photography at the University of Auckland School of Fine Arts, graduating in 1982. She currently teaches photography and media arts in the Bachelor of Design and Visual Arts programme at Unitec, Auckland.
