About the work

This drawing is part of an ensemble of pattern studies I am currently making. It is an expansion of a piece of textile found on a folk costume website.  

About the artist:

Born 1988 Paris, Marie Jacotey lives and works in Marseille. Graduated from Royal College of Art, London (2013); and from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris (2011).

Jacotey’s work draws inspiration from the gathering of people together, the expression of emotions in their many and varied interactions and the contexts and details in which these engagements take place – architecture, landscape, or place; picking out wallpaper, furniture, clothes, and zooming in further to detail pattern, patina, texture… Her works – though insistently manual in their making: paintings on plaster and dust sheets, pencil drawings, soft pastel on Japanese paper, sewing and fabric – make use of perspectives that reference the world of cinema and slow-mo, the photographer’s point and shoot.

Her work is held in the collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum, London.

Selected exhibitions include Daylighting, Ballon Rouge Collective, Brussels (2020); Blue Fear, Hannah Barry Gallery, London (2020); You pinned me down like a butterfly on the wall, Ballon Rouge Collective, New York (2020); Superzoom, 12 Rue Vauvilliers, Paris (2019); Absinthe, Spit & Sawdust, London (2019); Wild Love Me, NADA art fair, Miami (2018); and Goodbye Darkness, Ballon Rouge Collective, Paris (2018).

Awards include featuring her first animation short movie, co-directed with and written by Lola Halifa-Legrand, Blue Fear, as part of the official Cannes Festival Competition 2020.

Auction close and bidder extension

The auction closes at 9pm, Mon 5th July. However, if a bid is placed in the last two minutes, the auction end time will extend on that lot for an additional two minutes, or until all bidding has ceased. This is called Popcorn Bidding or Bidder Extension and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning.

Bid Increments

£50 increments for bids of £300 – £1,000

£100 increments for bids of £1,000 – £2,000

£250 increments for bids of £2,000 – £5,000

£500 increments for bids of £5,000 plus

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
