Marie Bovo

Born in 1967 in Alicante (Spain), MARIE BOVO lives and works in Marseille (France). Marie Bovo works with images, both video and photography. Her photographs play with duality and antinomy. Deeply rooted in reality, they sometimes raise geopolitical and social issues. Her work reveals a dual perspective on things, making a simple and unique situation express a universal dimension, where the past meets the present, where different cultures, especially those of the Mediterranean world connect to each other. Kamel Mennour and Marie Bovo have been working together since 2004.

She has exhibited at the Rencontres de la Photographie d’Arles, the Fernet-Branca Foundation, the California Museum of Photography, the FRAC Paca, the French Institute of Madrid, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, the Mac de Marseille among others.
Her work was part of group shows at the Institut Culturel Bernard Magrez, Bordeaux; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Maxxi, Roma; and the Biennale of Busan, Korea. In 2016 she was nominated for the ICP Inifinity Awards in New York, for her exhibition La danse de l’ours at the FRAC Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur.
