Marie-Ange Guilleminot, Residency October 2000 to March 2001
Marie-Ange Guilleminot lives and works in Paris. Very present on the international art scene, in Canada, Mexico, Israel, the United States, and Japan, she has participated in major exhibitions in France, including "Le Paravent" at the Capc Musée d'art contemporain in Bordeaux in 1998, or "Jour de Fête" in 2000 at the Musée national d'Art Moderne Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
The object is at the center of Marie-Ange Guilleminot's work, she gives it new functions and a new status as both an everyday object and a work of art. This is the case of Cauris, evolving from the shape of a shell to the function of a backpack, whose metamorphoses the artist explains with the public during the "Salons de Transformations".
In Saché, Marie-Ange Guilleminot continued work begun in 1999 on the shoe collection of the Bata Schoe Museum in Toronto. Conducting a real scientific research, and multiplying the surveys: each shoe was photographed in profile, at the same scale. Marie-Ange Guilleminot began to create prototypes, resin shoe soles, reinterpreting them in her own way.
It is at the Musée des Beaux-arts de Calais that Marie-Ange Guilleminot, through a large personal exhibition gathering all her Projects, (title of the exhibition) has chosen to present all her objects that allow her to establish a relationship with others, where Marie-Ange Guilleminot excels, presenting her as a principle, objective and means of creation and inspiration. Everything here confirms that it is all about passages, transmitting emotions, transforming in order to understand.
