Dries Van Noten is delighted to present MARIEVIC at
The Little House, 451 N. La Cienega Blvd.
Tourism is an immersive presentation in the form of a video loop, shot in Cuba during the artist’s visits to the country between 2009 and 2014. The work is conceived like a selfie, in which the camera focuses on the road where the artist is cruising, moving along on roller skates. She follows her track, turning her back to the landscape and crossing paths with locals, cars, trucks, buses and carriages. The smooth skating movement is constantly disrupted by the montage, condensing time and space. The result is an endless visual impromptu that explores the intensity of being in a space of otherness. This exhibition at Dries Van Noten’s Little House of MARIEVIC’s video piece TOURISM is presented on two free standing screens surrounded by elements that recreate a touristic experience of the work such as plastic sleepers and selfie stands.
MARIEVIC [b. Paris, France] is a visual artist currently living and working in New York.
She graduated from École Spéciale d’Architecture and received an MFA from Parsons The New School for Design. Her work considers the fetishized cultures of consumption and gives a careful look to changing conceptions of luxury and disposability. MARIEVIC often employs a decidedly absurdist sense of humor and always aims to develop visual idioms that explore the contemporary cultural landscape and exist within the liminal space of interstitial paradigms.
Her work has been exhibited at Red Bull Arts (New York), Eyebeam (New York), Fisher Parrish Gallery (New York), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), MOCA (Toronto), MuCEM (Marseille), Stems Gallery (Bruxelles), Eigen+Art (Berlin), Magda Danysz Gallery (Paris). In 2015, she won Vogue Italia’s best Fashion Film award for Blowing Riccardo. In 2018, she won the Lishui International Photography Biennal award for Uniclones. She is also the author of project on legendary architect François Roche, Who Are You François Roche? She teaches at the MFA Program of Parsons The New School.
