Marie Hazard is an artist, weaver from Paris, France. Weaving is by nature an act of civilization, an act repeated since the beginning of time. Marie manages to project this ancient and codified tradition into works of the most contemporary, playing with freely of materials and techniques. Marie Hazard resonates the woven fiber, the drawing and the painting. The voids thus created in the nets of Marie are the witnesses of this collective amnesia. By adding pieces of tissue that she selects, symbols of fragments of memory, Marie tries to reinvent her own story, another story.
