Marguerite Humeau

RIDDLES

Series: The Origin Story – Media and Making in Practice
Date: Wednesday 8 March 2017
Time: 18:30
Venue: Lecture Hall
Running time: 0 mins

Marguerite Humeau’s work stages the crossing of great distances in time and space, transitions between animal and mineral, and encounters between personal desires and natural forces. The work explores the possibility of communication between worlds and the means by which knowledge is generated in the absence of evidence or through the impossibility of reaching the object of investigation. Marguerite Humeau weaves factual events into speculative narratives, therefore enabling unknown, invisible, or extinct forms of life to erupt in grandiose splendour. Combining prehistory, occult biology and science fiction in a disconcerting spectacle – the works resuscitate the past, conflate subterranean and subcutaneous, all the while updating the quest genre for the information age. 


Marguerite Humeau studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven and at the Royal College of Art, London, where she obtained her MA in Design Interactions in 2011. Her work has been shown in various solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums including Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Nottingham Contemporary, Manifesta11 (Zürich), TBA21 Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary (Vienna), the Serpentine Gallery (London), the Museum of Modern Art (New York).
