Bio

OX'Art. Margaux Laneyrie Born in Roanne, France, Year 1993. She trained very early in dance, then discovered the plastic arts, in particular painting. When she was four, she started dancing lessons. Starting with Classic and Modern-Jazz until she was 12, with Christel Bayon Maisonneuve, she found herself drawn to Hip-hop and Breakdance, where she was trained by Reda Bendjilali, founding member of Cie Les Melting Potes, later named Cie No'made. She continues her evolution in dance and thrives fully in Hip-hop, a discipline that still accompanies her today. In 2014, she became interested in contemporary dance, where she evolves as an autodidact. At the same time, at the age of 12, she began her initiation to painting. Practicing visual arts in college, then in high school alongside the teacher and painter Jean-Pierre Pyat, she turned to visual art and performance. In high school, obliged to paint with a brush, she breaks the rules and embarks on dance-painting performances, in workshops and in the street. She left Roanne for Saint-Étienne to develop her knowledge and artistic practice at Jean Monnet University where she enrolled in a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Art History. She continued her studies with a Professional License in Multimedia Communication and Commerce in Vichy, where she learned to perceive art from a new perspective and to question the different ways of practicing and presenting it. She continues her journey in Master Artistic Creation, at the UGA of Grenoble - performing arts specialty in order to cross disciplines. She has always been interested in vertigo and tracing in an intimate, kinesthetic and visual relationship. She tends towards a work of improvisation starting from different states of the body: vertigo, fall and loss of balance.
