Marion Balac


Marion Balac (1984)

French artist with a degree in Fine Arts from the ENSBA in Lyon and a Master in Arts from the Paris 1 Panthéon La Sorbonne University.
Her work uses different media such as video, photography, drawing, screenshots and websites. Collecting data and images, using everyday websites as creation tools, she elaborates fictions and unprecedented situations.

The way in which the landscapes evolve and also, the way in which we see them, becomes the starting point of her wanderings, her investigations and games. From her computer or IRL, she travels to strange places to observe the landscape. She Converts data into fictions and objects into stories. Dealing with cartography and upstream tourism, she transforms her observations of tourist uses as those of locals into performances, novels, or movies. Her work has been exhibited at Cité Internationale des Arts (Paris), Khorshid Film Festival (Téhéran), Bandits-Mages (Bourges), Espace des Blancs-Manteaux (Paris), l'Abbaye (Annecy-le-Vieux), Galerie Neuf (Nancy), Hectoliter gallery (Brussels), Musée Saint-Raymond (Tolosa). She has had the possibility of developing her work in residences such as the Casa de Velázquez in Madrid or the Bellefour Room in Buenos Aires. In 2017 she exhibited at the Thaddeus Ropac (Pantin) gallery for the Jeune Création exhibition.


FASE + Dràcul·la

FASE is a place of work and meeting for artists, curators, researchers and for all those people whose work is related to artistic practices and contemporary thought. It was born as an independent and sustainable proposal for artistic practice with the aim of bringing together cultural agents who have the desire to seek other possibilities for growth and development. The project has ten production spaces for artists, six work tables and a multipurpose space of 60 m2 for the development of own activities and open to external collaborations.
In addition, FASE is also born with the need to continue the synergies derived from the work of some of the long-term residents at the Hangar.org research and production center. Paco Chanivet, Patricia Fernández, Marco Noris and Patricio Rivera are four of the artists from this center who migrate to FASE, joining the management of this initiative Blanca del Río, curator and Mercedes Pimiento, artist.

Dràcul·la is the house and workshop of Mònica Planes and Àlex Palacín and the name of the project that energizes as an extension of their extremities. They collaborate or accompany artists in the development of projects that stretch over time seeking to get closer and get to know different creative processes from a closer view.
During the last year, they have presented the exhibition Yoyo by Stephane Carpinelli, El número del gamer by Camille Orny and El Quadre que parla by Enric Farrés Duran. Currently, they accompany a project in process by Pol Olivé that will be presented in the coming months.
