Marie Bovo Nocturnes at the Fondation HCB
Marie Bovo work has been the subject of many solo exhibitions in France, including at Les Rencontres d’Arles, the kamel mennour gallery in Paris, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, the FRAC Provence Alpes-Côte d’Azur in Marseille and the Fondation Fernet-Branca in Saint-Louis. She has also exhibited abroad – at the OSL Contemporary Gallery in Norway, the California Museum of Photography and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art. These exhibitions have led to the publication of several books.
Night photography involves long exposure times, and one of the effects of a long exposure is that, along with light, time becomes part of the equation.
Her works have also been widely shown in group exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale in 2011, the Busan Biennale in South Korea in 2012, the Contemporary Art Biennale in Thessaloniki in 2013 and the Milan Triennale in 2014. Recently, she participated in the 29th Roesler Hotel exhibition in Sao Paulo in 2019.
The exhibition at the Fondation HCB presents 35 large format prints from 5 different series, as well as 2 films taken in Marseille and Africa.
