  • Marie Juillet

An undisciplined artist, my praxis and poíēsis are nourished by travel, encounters, contemplative space-time, ecopoetic otherness and the singular landscapes of La Planète. My artistic proposals are crossbred. I privilege the experience of artistic production over its efficient outcome. I question the hidden dimensions and poetic forces of discreet, furtive artistic acts.
