MARINE HUGONNIER – whose work includes films, photography, works on paper, books and performance – explores the relationship between text and image, between the descriptive and deceptive qualities of visuals and language. For her, the image always carries the promise of an excess of meaning, a resistance to its subjection to a purpose of commerce, propaganda and ideology – in short, the spectacle.
Art for Modern Architecture (2004–ongoing) investigates the role of the image, its abilities and its limitations and reverses the process by obstructing the press images on the front page of a week’s worth of newspapers (the series include The New York Times, The Times, Die Tageszeitung, Le Monde, The Herald Tribune, The Neue Zürcher Zeitung and Al Ayaam) with collages made of cutouts from ELLSWORTH KELLY’s book Line Form Color.
ELLSWORTH KELLY claimed that art was to be made for public spaces and buildings, thus establishing the modernist utilitarian project of art serving modern architecture. This project renews KELLY’S ideas and re-elaborates them within another medium, that of a newspaper, the ‘architecture‘ of which frames everyday life.
MARINE HUGONNIER (born in Paris) lives and works in London. She has exhibited internationally including solo shows at Malmö Konsthall, Sweden(2009), Villa Romana, Florence, Italy (2009), FRAC Champagne-Ardenne (2009), Max Wigram Gallery, London (2010), Nogueras Blanchard, Barcelona (2011) and Fortes Vilaca, Sao Paolo (2011) among others.

Marine Hugonnier utiliza fotografia, filme e colagens para discutir a natureza das imagens e a história sócio-política e cultural associadas a estas. A imagem não é apenas a representação visual de um objeto, paisagem ou pessoa, é o conjunto de relações de poder, convenções sociais, ambição política e força estética. Através da investigação de seus significados e limitações, Hugonnier nos apresenta uma obra que está no limite entre ficção e documentário trazendo uma reflexão sobre as condições que moldam nossa percepção da realidade.
