Marguerite Li-Garrigue

Lives and works in Saint-Denis (France).
Marguerite Li-Garrigue is a Franco-Chinese artist whose work is centred on the creation of dreamlike worlds in which characters are both endearing and repulsive.

Mutation and metamorphosis are subjects that have always preoccupied her. Equally influenced by the work of sociologist Elizabeth Woledge on intimacy and utopia, she explores the imaginary lands of Intimatopia in her artistic research. 

She graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2017 in sculpture, installation and performance. She studied entomology and natural sciences for 6 months in the United States in the art and biology laboratory at the School of Visual Art in New York. 

In 2018 she was awarded the Ebstein Prize for Contemporary Sculpture.
