Ten Blows, Flag

Ten Blows comprises of a series of ten short video works featuring Givenchy garments that have been borrowed from a Parisian fashion collector. Alluring in their atmosphere, the individual films are composed of clothing succumbing to the bracing winds in the Mojave Desert, California in an aircraft boneyard.

Simple sequences of coloured clothing that have either been tied to the skeletal frame of a discarded aircraft or rooted to the runway, energetically oscillates against the indelible outline of a dismantled aircraft carrier.

As much as these beautiful costumes appear entirely out of place, they do linger in the air as much as they might in the imagination – as a measure of the enduring elegance of these material garments in their alien setting.

Marie Vic

Born in Paris, currently living and working in New York, Marie Vic graduated from École Spéciale d’Architecture, Paris; before receiving an MFA from Parsons The New School for Design, New York. Marie Vic’s work varies greatly in its medium, with her use of sculpture, photography, video and installation; as part of her studio based practice.

Cultivating her own aesthetic vision, Marie Vic critiques the fetishised culture of consumption. While scrutinising the allure of luxury, over the crass consequences of a growing throw-away culture. Often resorting to a decidedly absurd sense of humour, Marie Vic aims to explore how the self performs in very different contexts. At the same time individually, globally, and more politically.
