The Laureate 2022 : MARIE BONNIN
Marie Bonnin's work revolves around the printed image.
The image is in his work often altered, put at a distance by different techniques of recording and manual printing. Her practice focuses on the contemplation of landscapes and nature which she tries to capture the many variations.
Literature occupies an important place there, coupled with an attraction for books and printed objects. The literary text, always present as a watermark or in a fragmented way, makes it possible to draw its relation to the landscape of lived experience to fiction.
After a residence at the Manufacture d'images du Bief in Ambert (Auvergne) during the winter of 2017/18, she is an artist member of the Casa de Velazquez, in Madrid, for the year 2018/19 then in residence at the Cité des Arts, in Paris, in 2019/20.
In parallel with her personal practice, she works on various illustration and publishing projects and draws for Hermès-Paris.
In 2014, she obtained the Déclics Jeunes grant from the Fondation de France for a mobile printing project and regularly offers engraving initiations in schools and at festivals.
