In her new series Stretch’, photographs of Marie’s long-term friend and recurrent model are printed on Lycra fabric. The ongoing collaboration between performer, dancer and actress as model, and Marie as artist and photographer, explores ideas around female friendship and the agency between model and photographer often linked to gender stereotypes in the history of art and photography. In Stretch’, the model is performing various yoga poses, generating for Marie a way to look at the fitness and wellness contemporary frenzy linked to current body politics. The photographs printed on Lycra are pinned and stretched to their limits, resulting in a distortion reminiscent of computer-altered images while alluding to the effort itself, the act and sensation of stretching muscles.
