Margaux Barsac was born in Bordeaux, France. After studying Graphic Design in Bordeaux, she studied in the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris. Her relationship to poetry began when she became aware of its ability to "pass a thread between things of the most heterogeneous aspect" (André Breton), and all the freedom that it includes. She resumes Pierre Reverdy's games of analogy in her practice, especially while working on her show’s installation, where a thread weaves between the photographs to allow the eye to discover the continuity. She finds inspiration in photographers like Adams, Sudek, Albers or Mulas, it was through their silver prints that her interest was revealed.
Nonetheless it is Raoul Hausmann for whom she has the deepest gratitude, because of the modesty of his subjects, his tones of gray, his work on the structure and the composition of the elements, the body, the expanses of the landscape. In addition, drawing holds an important place in her practice, where the line and the horizon are very present.
