Lives and works in Marseilles
Marie Ducaté's oeuvre, which is rooted in painting, develops somewhere between Art and decorative arts. She takes ways that are off the beaten track: significant work using ceramic and glass; furniture (items of furniture, lights, and rugs and carpets); traceries of light, beads and glass; and above all, now, monumental installations in which the fabric becomes the medium of an original work.
Marie Ducaté's world is shimmering and well referenced, summoning the figures of art history and those of the present-day arts and nature; it ventures at liberty to the boundaries of genres. Translated by Simon Pleasance
