Marmalade’s diverse practice is exhibited widely, including the Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; The Photographers’ Gallery, London; Marjorie Barrick Museum, Las Vegas; The Apulia Film Commission, Bari; and the State Museum of Gulag, Moscow.
Her work specialises in experimental approaches in photography, video and performance which playfully negotiate the authenticity and conventions of speech acts, history and science with queer politics.

In addition, she is co-editor of the publication of an edited selection of papers arising from the conference, titled: Mythologies, Identities and Territories of Photography: Forever//Now, published by and available from Cambridge Scholars
