Alix Marie French, b. 1989

Alix Marie (b.1989) is a French artist based in London, working across the mediums of
photography, sculpture and installation. She graduated from Central Saint Martins College, London, in 2011 with a first class honours degree in fine art and later completed an MA in photography at the Royal College of Art, London.
Her work explores our relationship to bodies and their representation, through processes of objectification, fragmentation, magnification and accumulation. She has demonstrated a particular interest in addressing gender stereotypes through visceral, genuine and an often humorous approach. Marie often mixes mythological references with autobiographical elements and intimacy is a recurring theme in her practice. She strongly believes that content and form come hand in hand and her materials are therefore carefully selected according to each project's subject.
Since 2009 Marie has been featured in exhibitions internationally and she has taken part in a number of artist residencies, including Void in Athens (2017) and the Speed Residency at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (2015). In 2017 she won the Portfolio Review Award, was selected for the 11th edition of Foam Talent Call, and her first artist book Bleu was published by Morel Books. She was recently nominated for the EMOP Arendt Award 2019 and will soon be part of the touring exhibition Bodyfiction as part of this year’s European Month Of Photography.
Recent exhibitions include Shredded, Roman Road, London (Solo, 2019); Large-scale
reconstruction: Body. Time. Context, FotoDepartament, St. Petersburg, (2018); and ADYTA, Ratinger Tor, Düsseldorf (Solo, 2018), as part of Duesseldorf Photo Weekend 2018.
