Malmros work is investigative in nature, specifically in terms
of play and games. She aims to create spaces where objects can act
somewhere between control and chaos. In doing so she tests out options
and offers up possibilities. She is interested in growth, movement
and the power of mental pollution. Her work is often small, minimal
and playful. Malmros has an ongoing interest in what dirt consists
of. Mary Douglas referred to it as matter out of place,
and this could be a way to understand Malmros work; creating
spaces with there own rules and letting objects play out their own
unexpected stories within them.
For + The Parasites she has spoken to Valarie Curtis at LSHTM and
looked into her research on hand washing, dirt, disgust and disease.
Malmros explores what human beings are made of as material and what
they are disgusted by, in a fresh manner with out the usual issues
that come when viewing human matter and the human condition.
