Apéro Art: "Hello Happiness!" by Marie Losier @BBB Centre d'Art, Toulouse
Time & Location
About The Event
For the exhibition, the artist made the choice to draw from her work, detaching her images from their origin: to take unpublished pieces of her films and unmounted views of future projects to create boxes of images, kinds of magic lanterns or photographic kamishibais. On one hand, there is the fun and enthusiasm to find scenes extracted from kilometers of classified film. On the other hand, there is the desire to recreate them into a new tale. Like an archaeologist of her own work, she imagined the installation of the exhibition as many new narrative threads.
Marie Losier studied literature at the University of Nanterre and Fine Arts in New York. Created on a platform of trust and friendship that allows for folly and eccentricity, her films explore the life and work of artists far from typical biographical or factual conventions to focus on pleasure, dreams and sublimated everyday life. Her films are regularly featured in festivals (Berlin, Rotterdam, Tribeca, etc.) and museums such as Tate Modern, the Whitney Museum, Centre Pompidou and MoMA. In 2018, she received The Guggenheim Award for her film "Casssandro the Exotic !." She has also done many portraits for directors, musicians and composers such as George Kuchar, Guy Maddin, Richard Foreman, Tony Conrad and Genesis P-Orridge. Born in 1972 in Boulogne-Billancourt, she lives and works between New York and Paris.
