About The Artwork

The artwork is from 17. 03 – 02. 07. 2023 at Diferite grade de libertate exhibition , kunsthallebega, România, Timișoara Curator: Diana Marincu Born in Paris Marie-claire Messouma MANLANBIEN (France, Guadeloupe, Ivory Coast) has lived in Paris since leaving Côte d’Ivoire in 2004 during the civil war. Marie-Claire Messouma MANLANBIEN works across a variety of mediums including, textile (Canvas, clothing and props), drawing, sculpture, photography, painting, video-performance, engraving, and installation. In her work, she seeks to juxtapose diverse cultural elements, bringing them together to form new, syncretic pieces with additional layers of meaning. Interested in the complex relationships between notions of a universal popular culture, everyday life, and traditional handmade construction processes, MANLANBIEN creates physical encounters between industrial and artisanal materials. She is inspired greatly by the traditional practices of the matriarchal Akan society in Côte d’Ivoire, who historically crafted weights in order to value gold. The artist speaks of her intention to create ephemeral, poetic narrations which are in perpetual renewal, resulting in tangible pieces which both ‘witness’ and ‘trace’ past diverse cultural histories. She sees her practice as an ongoing development and an exploration into the intersectional positionalities of women, which she represents in part through an experimental approach to the configurations of her works from one exhibition to the next. With each installation she strives to create poetic spaces, each piece manifesting a plural identity, representing their myriad cultural influences. MANLANBIEN defines herself as simultaneously a storyteller of poems and maker of forms.
