Manipulation of Landscapes and architectures by Marion Sagon
Marion Sagon depicts our world in an assembly of interchangeable shapes. Through man’s drastic actions our environment has been transformed irreversibly, she remasters our landscapes into compositions more satisfying than the real.
Born in 1983 in France, Marion Sagon works between France, the Netherlands and England.
Her approach consists in a questioning around the notion of landscape and architecture. In her paintings, she plays at manipulating landscapes/man built and their features. She deconstructs and remodels our environment to create new colorful worlds.
She also questions the digital era through installations with digital aspects, enriched by samples from 3D software and Google image. She attempts to create bridges between the real space and that of the digital. Her sculptures, exact copies of 3D models representing simplified natural elements, seem brought back from virtual worlds and compose, like generic souvenirs or digital artefacts, a sort of archeology of the future.
