Born. 1977. Lives and Works in Pari

After studying photography in Chicago (Columbia College) and New York (ICP), Marcelline Delbecq (b.1977) graduated from the Beaux-Arts school in Caen (France), then received a masters degree in curatorial studies from Université de Paris X-Nanterre. She was in residency at Pavillon in Palais de Tokyo in 2005 and was the French resident at Triangle in Brooklyn in 2007-2008.

She has gradually moved away from photography to focus on the cinematic and photographic potential of writing through installations, films, readings and publications. She uses both narrative and narrator (the voice) to create an uncanny world where texts, turned into sound, generate mental images shifting from description to fiction, from past to present, documentary to fiction. question.

She has showed and performed internationally in venues including: Palais de Tokyo, Fondation Ricard, Fondation Cartier, Kadist Art Foundation, Galerie Xippas, Centre Pompidou – Paris; Centre Pompidou – Metz,  CCS Bard, Dispatch, Art in General, e-flux, School of Visual Arts – New York; Johan Koenig Gallery, Chert Gallery – Berlin, Malmö Konstmuseum – Malmö, Fri Art – Fribourg, Mudam – Luxemburg; Beirut Art Center – Beirut.
