PHOTOWORLD MAGAZINE CHINA

Excerpt from Lucy Soutter's new article Expanded Photography: Persistence of the Photographic for Chinese magazine Photoworld :

"Alix Marie is fascinated by the photographic index—the power of the photograph to provide a direct physical trace of the thing photographed. In Orlando, another sculptural installation, a viewer encounters a huge heap of rock-like lumps, which on close inspection have photographic surfaces that looks fleshy, like some combination of skin, wax, pink marble or meat. Each photographic object is made out of close-up photographic prints of Marie’s boyfriend’s skin, mediated with layers of cracked and melted wax, scanned and reprinted. Marie plays on photography’s ability both to capture surface detail and to provide a precious souvenir of intimate moments. Blown up so much larger than life, Orlando’s skin is kind of creepy, and the piece as a whole has a rather obsessive feeling that reflects our attempt to use photography to hold on on to those we love. Other artists working in a related vein (who, like Marie attended the Royal College of Art) include Darren Harvey-Regen and Jonny Briggs, both of whom play with the notion of photographic trace and the push and pull between reality and representation."

French photographer Alix Marie‘s images will have you looking more than once, her exploration of the mutated body pushing the bounds of the medium and our comfort level. Beginning with nude images of herself and those closest to her, Marie takes her photographs and transforms them into large-scale installations and sculptures. The bloated proportions and crumpled flesh deflect and divert from the photograph’s origin, resulting in behemoth forms of something not altogether human. Targeting our relationship and unease with our bodies as well as implied undercurrents of femininity, the series presents a naked intimacy both stripped to the bone and deeply impassioned. We asked Marie about her process and where these figures come from.
