Promenades Photographiques 2024 : Marion Dubier-Clark


Les Promenades Photographiques in Blois presents an exhibition by Marion Dubier-Clark.

For several years, Marion Dubier-Clark has been building up an iconographic collection freed from the usual distinctions between the vernacular photography of Walker Evans and the science of forms characterizing the new objectivity of the Bechers.

The multiplicity of landscapes encountered, everyday scenes or capturing on the spot unusual fortunes, incomparable portraits and disconcerting settings, find under the instantaneous lens of Marion Dubier-Clark a delicacy and attention which makes them unique.

Because the artist handles contrasts with virtuosity: explosive-fixed, to paraphrase Cartier-Bresson, her images articulate the immediate, fleeting time, and the immemorial and patient time of the crossing.

In her recent series, this connection finds an original variation: the photo is adorned with embroidery. After the click of the mechanism, the slow stroke of the clock hands punctuates the passage of the thread, from one hole to another, on the surface of the image.

The photography gains in relief: it is embossed with silver stars, proudly darts its colored rays, brilliantly underlines the elegance of an animal or an antler. The image takes shape.

Embroidery on photography finds with Dubier-Clark a formal power which goes beyond the usual cliché of the anonymous portrait larded with gratuitous colors: it is the architecture of the image that its texture makes visible.

Using wire and photography, Marion Dubier-Clark creates a work of painting here, in the most classic sense of the term, and invites us to follow her Ariadne’s thread along the lines of flight and the meanderings of the history of art.


“My photos are so many moments of happiness that I want to share. No matter the technique, the means, what matters to me is the emotion that these images can suggest and nothing else.”

Marion Dubier-Clark works with Little Big Galerie in Paris.


Exhibition at the Promenades Photographiques festival in Blois from June 28 to September 1, 2024.
