Presentation of the artist

Louisa Marajo was born in Martinique in 1987.

"With a purpose, we can destroy a world and, through the knowledge of possibilities, build a world with debris ..." Kurt Schwitter.

It is by these words that the artist describes her approach, her works, a chaotic visual partition in which uncertain forms evolve and transform. The exhibition "Point de chute" traces a fragmentary narration that usually unfolds in her studio. The latter is a living picture: every element has its importance and it is above all the relations between things that the artist appropriates through paintings, drawings and photographs. Traces, fragments thrown, everything will go on stage in the elaboration of the pictorial gesture, its image and the emergence of her work.

Since 2015, Louisa Marajo has been working on a variety of undergoing scalable installations that evoke a permanent construction site as a continuous creation and a perpetual mise en "abyme"of representations of her studio. Her work proposes an analytical mapping which unfolds to infinity.
