Marguerite Horay is a Belgian visual artist.

She was born in Brussels in 1981 in a house of artists and writers.

 

She obtained an BA in Digital Arts from ENSAV Brussels in 2007 and an MA
from the Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent 2011.

 

Marguerite's work are expressed through various medias. Although she mainly focuses on collage, she also works on animated gifs and videos. 

All of her work is strongly and directly influenced by the surrealism movement, especially René Magritte, fellow Belgian artist. 

Keen to glorify Belgian Surrealism, she enhances her references with contemporary imagery, strong and narrative work. 

With La Fidélité Des Images, she wanders through the imagery of mountains as a strong metaphor for traveling and experiences with the nature of the highest kind.

She is currently working on a series of gifs.

Her works have been exhibited across Europe and published on Heaps, Dazed, Contemporiste, It's nice That, i-D, Vogue, Fisheye, among others.
