Marianne Heske (b. 1946) is educated at Bergen Kunsthåndverkskole, Ecole Nationale Supèrieure des Beaux Arts in Paris, Royal College of Art in London and Jan van Eyck Academie in Maastricht. Heske has been active as an artist for more than 40 years, and has exhibited in museums all over the world. She has been purchased by all the major museums in Norway and a number of foreign ones, including the Center Georges Pompidou in Paris. In 1980, Heske created a historic work with "Prosjekt Gjerdeløa" when, as her artistic project for the XI Biennale de Paris, she moved a 350-year-old lair from Tafjord in Sunnmøre to the Center Pompidou in Paris. The Løa was then moved from Paris to Norway again and exhibited at the Henie Onstad Art Centre, before being transported back to Tafjord and set up again in its place of origin exactly one year after its dismantling. Project Gjerdeløa has remained a historical key work in Norwegian art history in general and the history of Norwegian conceptual art in particular. Later, she moved an old wooden house that was passed outside the Stortinget. The project entitled "House of Commons" was done as a contrasting effect to the exalted national assembly and a reminder of the living conditions of ordinary people in Norway just 100 years ago. In Torshovdalen in Oslo, there is a 10-tonne bronze sculpture of a doll's head based on a figure Heske found in 1971 in papier-mâché, at a market in Paris.
