Marine Joatton, Un air de famille (A family resemblance)


Born in 1972, Marine Joatton graduated from the Paris School of Political Sciences, and continued her career at the School of Fine Arts in Paris. The "Un air de famille" exhibition presents her latest work: the visitor is immersed in a fantasy world inhabited by strange beings, where emotion is overwhelming.

The artist shows you a striking community of creatures with impressive consistency. Grope your way around in the mysterious land where Marine Joatton’s paintings take you. You cannot help but have a feeling of uncertainty, despite some recognizable details, some identifiable emotional and psychic experiences. Every creature, every thing seems to go about their own activities and fulfill some unknown mission. Their presence have an inevitable and personal emotional power on you.inks the universe by offering his personal cosmology composed of broken, fragmentary shapes, making sense through the evocative power of art.

Exhibition curator: Martine Dancer, heritage curator.
