France, b. 1995, based in Eindhoven

Etienne Marc produces objects that bring trickery, spectacle and humour. His use of materials borrowed from traditional art mixed with ones that refer to the physical reality of our time play with our expectations and challenge traditional meanings and values, aiming to question or even uplift the notion of the replica.

MEANT FOR PEARLS, CERAMIC

The daughter of Coeus, in her fierce rage,
forgets her thirst and now no longer tries
to plead with such undeserving wretches.
She can no longer bear to utter words
demeaning to a goddess. With hands raised
up to the sky, she cries:

‘Live forever in that pond of yours.’


YESTERDAY DID NOT DIE, CHANDELIER

One of those major theme // Wild flowers of roadsides and waste places // Weeds growing up through cracks in the pavement, reaching a wire fence  


YESTERDAY DID NOT DIE

Prominently displayed, antiques objects speak to the industrialization of the occupants of the house, occupants who therefore have become tourists of own their parent’s ways of life // They present themselves as relics which are first and foremost evidence of their own survival.



MEANT FOR PEARLS

He dreamt he was dreaming // Sleeping only to awake in Atlantis



CROWNED HEAD

Experiencing failures // Ceramic circle
