Marianne Herjean graduated from the Versailles landscape school in 2015. It was the following year, during a long stay in China, that she was introduced to painting and the poetry of global landscapes. She looks for the forms that are given to her to see "in situ" in the landscape. Like icons, the landscape returns and makes a presence to be seen, facing each other. What appears is that which wants to appear: pebbles, elbows, petals, wind. Between drawing, calligraphy and painting, she seeks an ecology of those who can be collected by the trace of a gesture; a sound, a light, the memory of a form.
