Magali Lambert is a French artist, born in 1982, based in Paris. She graduated from École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs of Paris in 2006. Magali Lambert sees in photography an opportunity to hod what tends to disappear by staging vestiges and relics. She collects and ritualizes abandoned materials saved from dumpster or oblivion. Her rites consist of collisions, images and words: «the worn forms become objects expanding history(ies). Riddles. All are fragile, all carry in them the preciosity and the precariousness of living».
«As a baudelairian ragman-poet, Magali Lambert scrutinizes remains of our civilization. She chases objects, vestiges and skeletons, marries them in a beautiful shape, photographs them as newlyweds, then pins the picture in a box of those made for butterflies or remarkable insects.» (Michel Poivert, Preface of Histoires naturelles, 2013)
Named member resident of the Casa de Velasquez, French academy in Madrid for year 2012-2013, her works are frequently exhibited worldwide and notably at Lianzhou photography festival (China), Montrouge contemporary art fair (France), or in art capitals such as New-York, Madrid, Paris, Marseille, Porto, and Brussels. h'artpon publishing house released her first monography Venus du jamais mort in autumn 2018, including a text co-written by the artist and Michel Poivert, as well as a text by Emmanuelle Lambert.
