Marie Valognes is a visual artist who works primarily with photography and moving image.
Her practice, which straddles fiction and documentary, is rooted in obsession and observation.
Marie routinely identifies patterns and motifs in mundane daily events and interpersonal relationships, which often form the foundation of her work. An image might recontextualise consumption, tenderness, or human psychology, with a profound specificity.
Above all else, the artist seeks to forge a connection with her viewer, which fact lends her photographs a kind of integrity often lost in an image-obsessed age.
Whether creating moving images, art projects, or operating at the intersection of both, Marie seeks to communicate something more than the untrained eye can see."
Marie was born in France and is currently based between London and Paris.
Her clients include: Alaïa, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Zara, Panconesi and publications as Double, Harper's Bazaar France and American Vogue.
