Polyvalent artist, trained in visual and live arts, also in aesthetics (DEA diploma), Maria Clark began by working with dance and theatre companies, and participated in differents artistic works.
From 2001, she began to work on her own. She wrote Anatol (du pays des pierres) (Anatol - from the rocky country), text about Armenia that she shot in an experimental super 8 film which was presented at the Rencontres Internationales Paris-Berlin-Madrid 2003.
She then turned to installations and performances, and in a DIY way, published her writings at La Plâtrière, a non-profit making publishing house she established in 2003.
Her work took a more militant turn with the installation Le Mur d'en face (The Wall oposite), about the walls of separation between territories and some of her recent videos.
Her performances are presented in the Public Space with street actions: Mrs. Smith - about the current immigration policy in France, Line 19, an action where she drew a long line for 2 km along a street between two Paris boroughs, Route 116 in the next central bus station of Tel Aviv (Israël), etc.
She worked accompanied by her life-size doll (miss clark & miss clark) and déveloped also other series of installations and actions using more often video and her own body.
She is also a professionel Art Model.
She organised a performance and visual arts street festival in Paris in October 2007 and 2009.
