Laure Mary-Couégnias

Laure Mary-Couégnias, lives and works inParis. 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 convey 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.
