Marsian De Lellis is an interdisciplinary artist and writer who constructs installations and
time-based visual narratives that memorialize obsessional lives. De Lellis draws
inspiration from offbeat characters whose private manias become public fodder for
tabloids and reality television.  They combine dolls, artificial figures, performing objects,
and elaborate costumes to investigate contemporary forms of animism, death, sexuality,
and addiction.  They are fascinated by the negotiation of personal identity – a repetition
of a repetition for which there is no original – in an ever-shifting landscape of
technologies that can drastically alter and re-map the body.
De Lellis is currently finalizing Object of Her Affection, while writing Model Killer: Giant
Crimes and Tiny Cover-Ups, a morbid comedy centered on a disgruntled dollhouse
maker turned investigator. Vivian Nutt builds dioramas of unsolved murders, only for it to
be revealed that she is in fact, a serial killer.
