Marianne Magne

Visual artist and experimental filmmaker, Marianne Magne uses drawing, writing, sculpting and digital manipulation to build audio-visual constructs. Borrowing from biological mechanisms her work articulates itself organically and grows out of the concept of life as an evolutionary process, from its origin to its hypothetical future. Using the human body as a starting point for multi-disciplinary experiments, mutated organisms evolve, multiply or split from the cellular level to more complex entities, “artifacts” and video meet  to create imaginary microcosms, Her video installations have been presented at Barnsdall L.A Municipal Art Gallery, CalState Santa Ana Art Center, Brand Art Gallery.

Born in Paris, M. Magne graduated from La Sorbonne in 1989. She migrated to Los Angeles in 1991 where she currently lives and works.
