Marielle describes her artistic approach as “conceiving a sensitive path between the internal world and the tangible in movement.” Her reflections often refer to socio-philosophical questions such as the human condition, the place of the sensitive in modern society, and as the environment which, according to her, provokes a constant reflection on our existence.
The artist uses different artistic media such as performing arts, video projection, film and performance art, always in search of a non-formatted writing.
Marielle received 6 awards for her artwork, PERFORMING LAND, for best artist film, best experimental and best art movie in 2021 and 2022 in Europe (France, Germany, Italy etc) and India.
Marielle was selected as 2nd winner on 60 international contemporary artists during the AURA exhibit and competition in London, at the Holy Art gallery in October 2022.
After an initiation to ballet and a training at the musical conservatory, Marielle left her native island of Martinique for New York to complete her artistic training, specializing in dance.
In Paris she continued her professional formation in various artistic disciplines, including dance, theatre, singing and drums.
