Born and raised in the south of France, Aubane Berthommé Martinez started to study fine arts in Caen. As a young adult, she questioned her status of woman in the French society, exploring this subject in her artistic research. After her graduation in fine arts bachelor she chose to leave her country to Canada, in order to confront her practice to a more militant behavior. After one year in Montreal, she got a visual arts and media bachelor, and she wanted to discover a new artistic and cultural environment. The desire to question and rethink the documentary and political aspect of her photographs brought her to the Netherlands where she achieved a photography master. Presently living in Rotterdam, she keeps confronting her research-based practice to new contexts and environments, and shares her passion for [engaged] art as a curator and art producer.
