Marianne Herjean

(French, b. 1989. Lives and works between Geneva and Bigouden)

Marianne Herjean’s works reflect her curious and nomadic nature. In search of visual, relational and spiritual experiences, her many travels and encounters are reflected not only in the subject of her art but also in the material used.

Inspired by the play of light, local climate, questions of one’s presence and the space around us, Herjean’s works offer a moment of contemplation, a window to a place far beyond one’s home. They are an invitation not only to expand one’s views but also to muse on life as it unfolds each day.

Herjean graduated from the École européenne supérieure de l’image d’Angoulême (France)(2017) and the École nationale supérieure de paysage, ENSP Versailles (France)(2015).
