LAURE MARY-COUÉGNIAS, born in 1989, lives and works in Paris. Her work aims to establish all kinds of dialogues, creating bridges between Naive Art, Pop Art and Surrealism, creating strange worlds that evolve in a universe where tender, naive, violent, sometimes erotic, visions of disturbing poetry are intertwined. Laure Mary-Couégnias questions the place of man in nature or in society; she captures, distorts, contours ideal, monstrous fauna that convery fragmented narratives of existence. Nature is an opaque surface of projection, a deaf fantasy that poses many questions to contemporary man, while challenging our understanding of it, a critical and aesthetic discourse at work where zoomorphic writing dissects the decor that adorns the world. As in a theatre in which the actors do not know they are acting, the subject is frozen and becomes a voluntary prisoner of a peaceful nightmare. Laure Mary-Couégnias’ work has been exhibited widely in Europe as well as at the Centro de Arte Contemporaneo Wilfredo Lam in Havana, Cuba.
