Marie Jacotey (b. 1988, Paris, France) works in Marseille since 2020 after 8 years in London where she graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2013. She graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, in 2011.
Jacotey’s work draws inspiration from the gathering of people together, the expression of emotions in their many and varied interactions and the contexts and details in which these engagements take place - architecture, landscape, or place; picking out wallpaper, furniture, clothes, and zooming in further to detail pattern, patina, texture... Her works – though insistently manual in their making: paintings on plaster and dust sheets, pencil drawings, soft pastel on Japanese paper, sewing and fabric - make use of perspectives that reference the world of cinema and slow-mo, the photographer’s point and shoot.
She released her animation short movie co-directed by Lola Halifa-Legrand, Blue Fear aka Filles Bleues / Peur Blanche (French title) at the Festival de Cannes 2020 and it has since toured over 50 festival. Her recent solo shows include Blue Fear at Hannah Barry Gallery, London, 2021, You pinned me down like a butterfly on the wall, at Ballon Rouge Collective, NYC, 2020 Other exhibitions include: Cratères, Solarium, Marseille, 2022, Don’t worry Honey, Hannah Barry Gallery, London, 2021. Her work can be found in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Jacotey is represented by Hannah Barry Gallery, London.
