Les contours de terre

‘Les contours de terre’ are fragments of biological and non-biological soil imprints. They make a poetic link between the structures of the soil and the way in which landscapes are formed. In the form of models, they question the interdependence of the microcosm and the macrocosm, and attempt to preserve the vestiges of a soil in transition.

A visual artist and market gardener, Marion grows shapes made up of intention and chance, born of a tense dialogue between control and letting go. Her work is built around a fragile alchemy, a tenuous space in which simple forms are transformed into fictional memories. A place of wonder and powerlessness, it is often the landscape of ruins that remains and imposes itself in his installations. It is no longer time that operates, but the acceleration of an entropic movement that shows the fragility of a world between calm and tumult.

Marion Séhier, born in 1987, lives and works in Brussels. She studied cross-disciplinary art at the Ecole Supérieure d’Art d’Avignon (FR) and sculpture at the Académie Royale des Beaux Arts in Brussels.
