Marleine Chedraoui (* Ehden, Lebanon) is a visual artist whose work explores the exhibition as a medium, while at the same time recurring upon it as the key format of her own artistic practice. She lives and works in Karlsruhe.
After obtaining her diploma in business administration, she first held a range of management positions, some of them at executive level, in various commercial enterprises, before establishing her own consulting, training, and coaching practice. Having organized several art exhibitions at the Hollerhaus project space in Bremen (a venue she had founded herself) she embarked on another course of studies at the University of Bremen in 2006, this time in art history and philosophy. In 2007, she went on to study art history, media studies, exhibition design, curatorial studies, and philosophy at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design, where she obtained her magister degree in 2012. The following year, she produced the exhibition sur veil at Kreuzberg Pavillon, Berlin. This project was followed by the exhibition Little Forest at the Tor 13 project space in Bremen in 2014. She was commissioned by Kunstverein Gera to produce the exhibition WERKBETRACHTUNG Eine Umkreisung in vier Akten, presented there in 2015. Her exhibition [ˈsəːvɪs] Present ٠ Perfect ٠ Continuous was shown in 2018 at IKOB – Museum for Contemporary Art in Eupen, Belgium. Within the Jubilee Exhibition for the 200th anniversary of Badischer Kunstverein, 49° – Cultural Production in Karlsruhe, Open studios, Marleine Chedraoui showed her exhibition project Ein Haufen von Spänen (Splinter Of Wood).
