Born in Paris, Marie Salomé Peyronnel is an independent curator and writer based in Brooklyn, NY.
As a curator Marie Salomé is known for discovering up-and-coming visual artists such as Radouan Zeghidour (France), Sophia Narrett (USA), Alessandro Teoldi (Italy), Elsa-Louise Manceaux (Mexico City) and more.
She is particularly interested in artistic practices that blur the lines with other fields (e.g., crafts, literature, music, technology, travel or food). Her previous shows took place in galleries, gardens and decommissioned spaces around New York.
As a writer, Marie Salomé mostly writes short stories, both in French and English. Her first book Le Livre qui console was published in 2014 by Flammarion (France) and is a mix of short stories, interviews and drawings about tears.
