FIAC TIPS | Intérieurs 2020: Marie Angeletti, “Robe à smock”

Marie ANGELETTI Robe à smock, 2020Video, colour, sound2mn 33sec From my parents' house to my new flat and workshop in Marseille, August 2020. Marie Angeletti (b.1984, FR) lives and works in New York.

She uses photography, videos, installation, although her work varied in its forms....

Gaëlle Choisne Push Me Out, 2020Video, colours, sound3mn 03sec "Push Me Out" is, at first glance, an exploration of the anatomy of a bird feather found by the artist at the Lattara archaeological site in Lattes (Occitania) where she was in residence.
