Marie-Margaux Bonamy

Artistic approach :
Marie-Margaux Bonamy is a visual artist who questions the "place" of individuals according to a context, a place, a news. These works address a militant dimension, and challenge the status quo of our contemporary society. In this sense, his works include a participatory dimension, which can be manipulated, or require action from the public.

Biography :
Marie-Margaux Bonamy is a visual artist based in Rouen. Graduated in 2017 from a DNSEP from ESADHaR, she joined the POLYMORPHE collective which renovates and questions the place of transitional spaces. She participates in the construction of various projects and places: La Galerie Trampoline, La Galerie d'à Côté and recently La Maison Pressée; space for exchange, transmission and support for emerging artists.
With her collective, she imagined the work Entre Temps, in response to the Lubrizol ecological disaster. The project takes the form of a traveling stand of apocalyptic snow globes questioning the ecological repercussions on the city and its inhabitants.
In 2019, she won the Impulsion grant for her plural exhibition project “And your mother? which addresses gender equity and gender stereotypes. The same year, among 14 European artists, she took part in the traveling European exhibition The third place organized by the CréArt network, where she presented her Constellation project.
Invited by Medium Silver for a micro-residency, she produced the work STELA, a dummy commemorative stele probing our relationship to homage and the representation of feminicides in our society.
Following the global pandemic, she will start a project around the status of the artist in French society. A first project formulated as a speech is born and will receive the support of the association RN13bis registered in the device STATE OF EMERGENCY. Marie-Margaux continues to work in her field.

Featured works that are part of the Deflower Embroidered Card Series:
Questions the image of the flower in its plurality. Symbol of both love, death and sacrifice. Each of the cards describes one of the feminicides that occurred in 2021.
