About Studio Marlot et Chopard

Studio Marlot & Chopard is a French duo artist working with photography and video since 1996.
Their work questions natural or urban landscape and architectural heritage, but is also about dreaming and the atmosphere the night can provide.
Their work mainly focuses on creating a fantasized territory, using through the series components the reconstruction of imaginary places or the juxtaposition of temporal layers, whose unity is aesthetical above all.
Marlot and Chopard are keen to get the emotion that an unexpected encounter with the eeriness of a place can offer, also its significance with a familiar reference which provides its beauty, by visiting and discovering more and more places without looking back. Indeed, the images cherish multiple references to other art forms, whether it is painting or sculpture, and cinema or music for the videos, as well as personal anecdotal references which lay among the works like a life pattern or a way of being and thinking evolving throughout the possible encounters and other circumstances of life.
To fix the image is also a way to restore the encounter’s richness, to grab a moment of grace and give it back through the photographic object.

Education

Rémy Marlot was born in 1972 and studied photography with the curators of the Niépce Museum in Châlon-sur-Saone, France before studying at the School of Fine Arts in Dijon, France and La Sorbonne, Paris.

Ariane Chopard-Guillaumot was born in 1974. She studied philosophy in the high-level Khâgne degree in Dijon before graduating in Aesthetics at the Université Paris 8. Additionally she is the author of several texts including a text about their video work published at the Analogues Editions and more recently for the Parisian Jeu de Paume Museum on-line magazine and for the Heritage Center of Montauban, France.
