Marie Bovo

Born in Spain in 1967, Marie Bovo lives and works in Marseille (France).

Her work associates photography and video. Bovo captures physical spaces at dusk occupied by diverse communities, in search for their traces that suggest human presences while they are absent from the image. The photographer focuses on different places of the Mediterranean basin and African coasts: inside courts, a kebab restaurant or a Romani camp in Marseille, empty apartments in Algier or open-air kitchens in Ghana. “It’s not so much the architecturethat interests me,” Bovo says, “but how it isused and lived in.” Her photographs reveal what is hidden, what lasts in the silence.

Bovo’s long exposures in natural light with her large-format camera captures the most little details.

Marie Bovo has been the subject of numerous exhibitions in renowned venues, such as the Maison européenne de la photographie in Paris (2010), the California Museum of Photograhy, the Fondation Fernet-Branca, Saint-Louis (2016) and the Rencontres d’Arles (2017). In Spring 2020, the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris presents a mid-career survey of her work including her two new series: En Suisse – Le Palais du Roi and Evening Settings.

Marie Bovo is represented by galleries : kamel mennour, Paris/London, OSL Contemporary, Oslo and Laurence Bernard, Genève.
