Marie-Lou Desmeules – My Superlative Piece Of Art

Die lebenden Skulpturen von Marie-Lou Desmeules sind extrem bizarr.

Man fühlt sich in eine andere Welt versetzt und irgendwie ist es da auch ein bisschen gruselig, wie in Frankensteins Laboratorium.

Die Herangehensweise der Künstlerin ist allerdings eine andere: sie macht lebendige Menschen zu Skulpturen – zu unbelebten Dingen – die um so weirder erscheinen, da klar ist, das sie lebendig sind.

Aber wer kann euch besser etwas über Kunst erzählen, als der Erschaffende selbst.



My Superlative Piece of Art – Marie-Lou Desmeules

Marie-Lou Desmeules is a visual artist who experiences a creative rebirth through every piece of work she plans.
After digging up a multitude of socio-political symbols of today`s mass culture, she playfully fits a puzzle generated within every flea-market experience that she has, influences that she picks up from her environment, then goes into a sort of live sculpture performance – ego drops down, irony spans layers and layers of transition and the result is a flamboyant satire.

Please introduce yourself.
My name is Marie-Lou Desmeules.
I was raised in Quebec, I lived in Berlin for a decade & I am currently based in Valencia, Spain.
I am a music lover, I like discovering the unseen treasures in flea markets, I am attracted by the bizarre and most of all, I enjoy life.
As an artist, I create sculptures using people’s bodies as my base.
I call it „Paint + Plastic Surgery“.

Your favorite piece of art?
Right now, it is „Divine“. This is the first work I created this year.

Is there a story behind it?
I used acrylic paint, plastic, adhesive breast lift tapes, hair & clothes on top of my Spanish friend Merche (who is the story behind it).
After 3 hours of operation, the queen of bad taste was resurrected!

What is art for you?
It means everything to me.
I might better explain it with colors!

Even though my mom raised me right that rap shit saved my life and sometimes I may look kinda funny but ain´t no fool cause whatever I want to do I make it clever. Still life as a shorty shouldn´t be so rough but I´m leaving the past cause I learned I´m the only motherfucker that can change my life.
