Marie-luce Nadal is an architect and a visual artist. Her research is closely related to the space flow, movement and fluidity. Attracted by the set design and the visual arts during her studies in architecture, she founds in 2004 a collective based on contemporary expression called “STARTXXI”. “STARTXXI” gave birth to different installations like “We Come In Peace”, “Ca ne Nous Rendra Pas l’Octroi”, “Qui M’aime Me Suive”. In 2006 she won the initiative grant, that allowed her to work on a fog device in the Atacama desert. She lived several years abroad and now is based in Paris. In each country she settled in, she worked with various scientific and artistic organizations such as the CEAZA and CONAF in Chile or PIMPOLHOS Rio in Brazil. In 2009, while she was at La Plata in Argentina, she graduated in Architecture and Urbanism. The project she lead was dealing with the creation of a multi-pole mode focusing on the dynamic flows and their interactions between la Plata and Buenos Aires. In 2010, she was selected to present her work at the exhibition “Mobilités” settled for the OFF of the festival “VISA pour L’Image” in Perpignan. In 2011, she joined École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in the Set Design section, where she focused her researches in the interpretation and production of synthetic landscapes. In 2012, she offered a plastic representation of Rimbaud’s “Bateau Ivre” as a pilgrimage into an evolutive climate. This performance was made with objects diverted from their regular use. In 2012, she joined the DiiP/EnsadLab (now Reflective Interaction) and the SACRe doctoral program. In 2013 she organized the first part of “Apparences du hazard”, a workshop investigating the perceptions of wind and its traces.
