Marvin Gaye Chetwynd
Marvin Gaye Chetwynd (b. 1973, London) is a British artist whose practice intertwines performance, sculpture, painting, installation and video. Chetwynd’s performances and videos harness elements of folk plays, street spectacles, literature and multiple genres of cinema. They generally employ troupes of performers – friends and relatives of the artist – and feature handmade costumes and props. Through improvisatory, irreverent and carnivalesque dramas, she has ranged across a panoramic range of subjects.
