The work of Alix Marie (1989, France) blends photography and sculpture in a long process of experimentation. She believes the life of a single image can be infinite and considers the photograph as an object, so her process starts with the potential of the image for materiality, touch and three-dimensionality. Marie first shoots an image, and then prints it on various materials; she then re-photographs the print, or works with it to create a distinct object. Core to her work is also the physicality of the human body, which she uses to emphasise the physical photograph’s qualities. “I am investigating the similarities between skin and the photograph: both surfaces, both fragile, both filled with secrets and taboos,” she says. “As a photographer and a person I feel teased by the impossibility of seeing what is beneath the image and what is beneath people’s skin, I would like to scratch the surface and dig.”
