Marianne Marić

Born in Alsace in 1982, Marianne Marić studied at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Art et de Design in Nancy, then at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin, from which she graduated with a Master's degree in 2009. She now lives and works in Mulhouse and Paris. She developed her technique by assisting Martine Barrat and perfected her printing skills in the mythical Parisian Imaginoir lab, without ceasing to look at paintings, particularly the paintings of Jean-Jacques Henner (1829-1905). Thereafter, she spent some time in a series of countries throughout Europe. Rainer Oldendorf invited her to Les Arques in the Lot department in France. She then moved to Sarajevo to learn about her family history. The following year, she continued her research in Serbia. The fruit of this decisive journey in the Balkans was shown by the gallery owner Pierre Courtin at the Parisian fairs NoFound Photo Fair in 2012 and Art Paris in 2014 and continued to travel to the Duplex100m2 Gallery in Sarajevo, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Serbia, the Art Centre of Maribor in Slovenia and the National Museum of Montenegro in Cetinje.

Since 2007, she has been developing a transdisciplinary body of work, in which she deconstructs the boundaries between various mediums by using the body as a sculptural tool. In her creations, art, fashion, design, photography, music, and video merge through the use of women's bodies as ‘an extraordinary and fascinating architecture’. She deconstructs stereotypes to better re-use them, has fun playing with symbols to give them another twist. In 2017 she had a solo exhibition at la filature in Mulhouse (by Emmanuelle Walter) and 2018, she had a solo exhibition in Sweden (by Christian Caujolle), then she represented France at the Athens Biennale (Poka-Yio) and in 2019 she was guest of honour at the largest photography festival in Latin America: the FIFV in Chile. In 2020, she was invited by Joël Riff to stay regularly at Moly-Sabata in order to draw up a portrait of the artists' residence. This resulted in the publication "Sabata Cash" and a collection of glazed ceramics.
