Naïs Marcon (1999)

Biography

 

Born on February 26, 1999, in Clermont-Ferrand, Naïs Marcon graduated from the Aix-en-Provence School of Fine Arts (ESAAIX), where she joined the "Real-Time Art" research studio, specializing in the study and questioning of emerging technologies and the changes they generate in society.

 

She also studied at the Academy of Fine Arts AVU (AKADEMIE VÝTVARNÝCH UMĚNÍ) in the Czech Republic in the studios of artists Dušan Zahoranský and Pavla Sceranková.

Naïs Marcon's artistic practice revolves around common spaces, focusing on the porosity between urban public spaces and digital public spaces. Her work incorporates notions of ordinary violence, daily violence internalized by culture, history, and our ways of life.

 

 

For the exhibition "Présent.e.s" at Galerie Catherine Pennec, Naïs Marcon intends to take a different approach from her usual practice (social and political issues) to bring, through her paintings, a moment of lightness, contemplation, and poetry. She thus offers a "harmonized" series of paintings with the same pictorial technique.
