Marion Delarue is a French artist and jeweler, living in Strasbourg (France).
She defines her practice as follows: “In my creations, I play mainly on the ambivalence of feeling existing between attraction and repulsion. I attempt to attract the viewer and to make him/her feel like using these unusual objects by choosing meticulous traditional techniques, natural material or recognizable aesthetic codes.
And yet these pieces make the viewers wary of them, sometimes appearing repulsive to them because of the use of human body parts, sometimes appearing frightening because of my resorting to imaginary creatures. Aesthetics sets a trap.”
