8 Works exhibited on Kooness

Although Louisa Marajo defines herself as a painter, her works are scafolding: mobile and reusable. Everything is in motion. Her installations plunge us into a labyrinth where painting transforms and mixes with photography to venture towards sculpture in a staging that is both chaotic and orderly. Drawing adds a new body space to her imagination. It is a research where the artist questions her own history in order to analyze a world that falls apart. Since 2018, Louisa Marajo is interested in the ecological catastrophe of sargasso (accumulation of toxic algae on the beaches of the Caribbean). Graduated from the School of Art and Design in St Etienne and Sorbonne in Paris, Marajo has been exhibited in some prestigious institutions such as Perez Museum in Miami or Clement Foundation. She is participating invarious biennales in 2022: Dakar, Kinshasa and Bamako.
