Marie Lynn Speckert alias DURA (*1989) is a contemporary media-artist, composer and metal-sculptor. She lives and works in Berlin and Leipzig. Her artistic work combines anatomic structures, sterility, sounds with performance and sculpture. She creates atmospheric scenes. By utilizing sculpture elements, innovative sound microcosms and delicately balanced actions, complex sensory impressions and association possibilities emerge.
Her creations usually have a strong but fictional connection to medicine. They refer to processes, changes and mortality. Materiality as expression and as a form of aesthetic perception. The components of material as a fetishistic element, depicted through autonomous and natural sequences. The language of material serves well particularly with metaphoric processes.
