Margarita Frančeska Ieva Loze (b.1997) is an artist born in Latvia, currently living and studying in London. Margarita is working across hand-drawn stop motion, drawing, writing, embroidery and sculpture. Cross-disciplinary, she further explores the poetic world-wandering, intimacy and memories through the narratology of discontinuous remembrances and myths. She often uses found objects as a surface to create work on, blending derelict objects' ephemerality with imagination. 

 

Margarita is currently enrolled in MFA Fine Art at Kingston School of Art. She has exhibited and screened her work in UK, Turkey, Finland and Latvia. In 2022, she was selected for the Venice Fellowships programme for la Biennale de Venezia 2022, to develop her proposed project while stewarding the British Pavilion.
