Polyptyque 2021 : Centre Photographique Marsielle

27 August - 17 September 2021

Black Box Projects is delighted to present Victoria Marques Pinto at Polyptyque fair in Marseille. Following the artist's successful debut with the gallery summer 2021, Marques Pinto was invited by fair director and curator Magali Avezou of Archipelago to exhibit alongside 9 other international contemporary artist's for this year's Polyptyque fair. Marques Pinto will exhibit the dynamic works from her ongoing Imminent Impressions series alongside internationally acclaimed artists Clare Strand, Thomas Mailaender, Max Pinckers, Gloria Oyarzabal, Federico Clavarino, Sébastien Arrighi, Laurence Aëgerter, Rachel de Joode and Pinar&Viola. 


For the third edition of Polyptyque, the Marseille contemporary photography fair, a new approach is being adopted. Under the artistic direction of Magali Avezou, Polyptyque will explore the current trends in photography with the Contemporary Stories exhibition that brings together ten international artists in collaboration with their European galleries.


The artists in the Contemporary Stories exhibition survey the current state of images while highlighting their influence on both our daily lives and the power of narrative in our understanding of the world. In some works, the “surreal” takes on a cathartic dimension as a response to the brutality of environmental awareness and the grip of technology on our daily lives. In other works, humour and irony allow a more distanced approach to current issues and events. The artists also use physical reality as a tool for interpreting contemporary society, through the representation of nature and bodies but also in the materiality of the works themselves with sculptures, tapestries, collages, installations...


Imminent Impressions by Victoria Marques Pinto (Black Box Projects, London) looks at the impact of consumerism on the environment and our representation of the world. 


The fair is open to the public from 27 August - 18 September 2021 at the Centre Photographique Marseille, France.
