Lives in London, Works in London and Geneva
Reality is becoming increasingly opaque, and could be seen as a permanent fiction.
Marguerite Humeau is the designer, heroine, and narrator of epic journeys which aim at reconnecting with extinct, unknown, or physically unreachable places and events. She creates work at the boundary between design, sculpture, performance, documentary and storytelling.
Humeau has to overcome the difficulty of creating work from nonexistent, inaccessible or lost data. The work is introduced as a quest, setting up an enigma, narrating the journey, and staging its final outcomes: "science-fictions", semi-real, synthetic, supernatural events.
Humeau’s work has been recognised internationally through various awards and publications including TAR magazine, I-D, Blueprint, Azure, Dezeen, Designboom, DesignWeek, FastcoDesign, NPR, France Culture, Libération, Le Monde.
Her work is part of the MoMA New York permanent collection.
