Marika Drolet-Ferguson
Photographer

Marika Drolet-Ferguson is from the Acadian Peninsula in Eastern Canada. She is interested in the relation between nature and imagination. Photography is for her a practice of observation: it is through this medium that she explores how the land that surrounds us also comes to inhabit us. The slowness of the analog process gives her the freedom to discover what lies beneath the surface of things. By cultivating a sensitive and attentive look, her researches aim to develop a sense of belonging and offer an experience of connection with nature.

Marika’s photography work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions, including at Galerie Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen, Moncton, Galerie Bernard-Jean, Caraquet, The Factory, Iceland, and in the form of public artworks, Sheldrake, 2017 and Fogo, 2018. She has been artist-in-residence for ARNA in Sweden, 2014, 2016, Listhùs in Iceland, 2015, 2019, and Vu Photo in Quebec City, 2018. In collaboration with Mathieu Boucher, she took part of the Moncton Art-Nature Symposium, 2016, and the Sudbury Alternative Art Fair, 2018.

She is a lecturer in photography at the Université de Moncton from 2016 to 2018, and in drawing at the School of Architecture of Université Laval in 2018. Marika studied visual arts before completing studies in architecture at Université Laval, Quebec, and at the University of Genoa in Italy. She pursues her research in visual arts in conjunction with her architectural practice.

  • Gregory Crewdson: Retrospective
    May 29 – Sep 8, 2024
    Albertina
    Wien, Austria
    Gregory Crewdson (*1962, Brooklyn) is one of the world’s most renowned photographers. Since the mid-1980s, Crewdson has been using the backdrop of small American towns and film sets to create, like a director, technically brilliant and colourfully seductive photographs that focus on human isolation and the abysses of society. The enigmatic scenes self-reflexively raise questions about the boundary between fact and fiction but can also be related to socio-political developments. (more…)
  • A Model
    Feb 9 – Sep 8, 2024
    Mudam
    Luxembourg
    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)
