High-colored geometries, strict compositions are at the core of Marie Rime’s work. She presents Armures and Pharma. Armures is a series about women dressed in costumes fashioned from everyday objects. These portraits are the starting point of a reflexion about the relationship between power, war and ornament. These women lose their identity and become a support for their clothing.
In Pharma, she questions an industry which is very much talked about in Switzerland : the pharmaceutical industry. Here, she zoomes in pharmaceutics packagings, that she chooses to photograph against a colored background, for a result which reminds of minimalist painting. Also at stake here, is the notion of a too-obvious beauty.
Marie Rime studies photography at the Ecole Cantonale d’Art de Lausanne (ECAL). Her work has been exhibited in 2013 as part of the ECAL photography show at Galerie Azzedine Alaïa, Paris and Galleria Carla Sozzani, Milano as well as in the context of the prize Vfg Nachwuchsfördepreis at Galerie Oslo 8, Basel, Switzerland.
