Biography

Marie Hazard

Marie Hazard

1994, Paris

Marie Hazard lives and works in Paris. Born in 1994 in Le Havre, she graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2017 in London with a BA in textile design. Her medium of choice is weaving and printing. Weaving has long been considered more as a craft than as art, but weaving techniques have entered in the vocabulary of contemporary fine art through the work of Bauhaus artists such as Annie Albers, and later, through the Arte Povera movement, including the work of Alighiero Boetti, with whom Hazard has shown in 2020. Marie Hazard works with different concepts and sources, abstracts or not, highlighting memories and promises. Literature, disposable photographs from her travels, abstracts paintings, are used to question the displacement and the position of the viewer. This is particularly relevant in her recent “spirals” works, represented as a vortex following a single law: never being interrupted. In 2019, she went to Mexico City for her first artist residency. Three years later, Hazard came back to Mexico and visited São Paulo, Brazil to pursue her research in textiles. She created “Potyra” with her friend Sophie de Mello Franco; a non-profit project to support the construction of an art center aming at helping the young community in Serra Grande (Bahia, BR). Today, Hazard’s work can be found in many private and international collections. She also participated in a performance project at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum in 2019 and is currently working on a new performance which will take place at the Anahuacalli Museum in Mexico City in November 2022.
