MISC is happy to present Alix Marie’s Perasma, her first solo show in Athens. Alix Marie and Sylvia Sachini’s collaboration dates back to 2017 when Sachini hosted Marie during a 3 months residency with Void while she researched for her 2018 solo show Adyta in Dusseldorf. With Perasma, Marie takes over the entire space of the gallery with an exhibition in two parts. Upstairs she will be presenting the new body of work Smilax while the downstairs gallery will host the project Styx (2021).


Alix Marie (b.1989 in Bobigny) is a French multidisciplinary artist, working mostly across the mediums of photography, sculpture and installation. Her work explores our relationship to bodies and their representation, through processes of fragmentation, magnification and accumulation. She has demonstrated a particular interest in addressing gender stereotypes while working on the persistence and influence of myths. Metamorphosis; of bodies, of mediums, of and within stories is at the center of her practice. She graduated from Central Saint Martins College in 2011 with a first class degree in fine art and later completed an MA in photography at the Royal College of Art (2014). In 2019 she was awarded the Vic Odden Award by the Royal Photographic Society for a notable achievement in the art of photography by an artist aged 35 or under. In 2021 she presented her new body of work Styx at the National Center of Photography in Australia and is included in the “Fifty Pioneers Defining Photography for the Twenty-First Century” of Charlotte Jansen’s book Photography Now published by Tate and Octopus publishing.
