For 20 years, Marine Hugonnier’s work has acted as a critical analysis of the way in which the conventions of representation collude with political ideologies. The French-British artist sees her practice as an investigation into the politics of the gaze, and seeks to uncover the underlying mechanisms of power in these times of pervasive spectacularisation. Hugonnier is committed to giving an account of what it is that shapes images and, in so doing, to question the effect of colonialism, capitalism and patriarchy on any mechanism used for recording and reproducing images in Western societies. Having always felt like a foreigner because of the different countries in which she has lived, Hugonnier is driven by an urge to deconstruct the cultural framework that shapes our gaze and to replace it with one that is liberating and non-alienating. A filmmaker first and foremost, Hugonnier has frequently travelled with her Aaton camera, filming as she walked and vice versa, taking the standpoint of a reporter or ethnographer in a conscious effort to blur her status as an artist.
