Arles 2013: Marion Gronier (BMW)


BMW and the Musée Nicéphore Niépce got together in 2011 to create the BMW Residency. It allows a young artist photographer, chosen after a call for candidates, to work on a personal project for three months in Chalon-sur-Saône in autumn each year. Under the guidance of François Cheval, the museum curator, the artist is provided with the means to take their ideas further and extend and widen their exploration. On top of a €6000 grant and lodging in Chalon-sur-Saône, the artist is offered the opportunity to publish a book and exhibit their work at the Rencontres d’Arles, at Paris Photo and then at the BMW Museum in Munich. This patronage aims to support both artistic creation and distribution to as wide an audience as possible. In 2012, the selection committee awarded the residency to Marion Gronier, chosen from among 43 candidates. Gronier’s work impressed for its way of stripping faces back to reveal pure emotion, the soul.
