					Marie Christine PALOMBIT was born in Saint-Denis en 1957. She lives in Sevran, France. In 2005, she
worked in Montreuil and created the ARTCORPUS studio conceived like a broad space of creation,
self-development and artistic exchanges.

She graduated from Camondo School in 1981 then worked as an interior designer for 10 years before
returning to drawing. She exhibited her works for the first time in 1992. She has been teaching for a few
years at the Camondo School and at the Landscape School (ENSNP) en Blois. In 1994, she produced
her first sculptures and took part in graphic performances before a live audience (Off festival in Bobigny,
Web bar...).

Her graphic and plastic quest revolves around the body as memory and disclosure of feelings.

The artist’sfirst period (from 1992 to 1996) initially figurative and rather classical provides us with twisted,
writhing, tormented figures after the manner of E.Schiele.

The following series deliberately seem to move towards an ellipsis of lines so as to give greater
importance to the meaning without giving any keys to the reading.

Her works stand on the borders of representational and abstract.

The ellipsis of lines is allowed by various techniques (tearing, collage...) using paper and other materials
(pigments...)
As the artist puts it, it is a way to hush up things, for what is to be depicted partakes of the obvious. The
language becomes simpler even if its decoding is not neccessarily so, the paintings presenting different
layers of interpretation.

After a series devoted to the feminine figure with “ îles “(“iles” in English) at the beginning of 1999 and to
its masculine counterpart “ îls ” (an alteration of “ ils ” which means “ they ” in English and used when the
gender is masculine), she understood an intermediary work on infancy (the ultimate stage of her
introspection) between 1999 and 2000 before going on with her work on the body from 2000 to 2001 with
series such as “ Jean-Louis ” (a French Christian name), “ Variations Dominique ” (“ Variations about
Dominique “ being a French name) and finally “ Suite sur lui ” (“ Suite about him ”).

In 2001, Marie-Christine Palombit cast a new light (a new energy) on her work with the “ lumières
intérieures ”(“ inner lights ”) series which foreshadowed the 2002 and 2003 trend towards bodies on the
move with the “ l’homme qui marche ” (“ the walking man ”) series and towards choreographed, radiant,
sylphlike bodies on thr borders of psychedelic (the “ koregrafi ” series).
The body is staged, revealed, bare, it trobs, implodes, is delivred, its legs wide apart....

The artiste seems freed of her demons not of her obsessions.

In 2004 and 2005, she presented us with “ les rouges ” (“ reds ”), a series of representations very close
to “ the origin of the world ”, after with “ indigos ” in 2006, procreation, the female womb, her own
womb, organic life, cellular matter.
Almost dissected, in pieces, sequence shots after sequence shots, the body is fingered, torn to bits, split,
X-rayed. It is both the container and the contents. It becomes living matter, red, bloody, so human, it is a
symbol.
The result is almost a product of rough art, it is a return to origins, a rebirth, a life compound.
