FIAC 2011 Mercier

Mathieu Mercier was born in 1970. He lives and works in Paris. His work, which often involves the appropriation of everyday objects, is inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s ready-mades. In works which question the standardisation of our contemporary societies, he frequently employs industrial materials such as melanin, chipboard or Plexiglas. A minimalist heritage is also apparent : by isolating the objects from any decorative context and removing their utilitarian character, he concentrates solely on their physical identity as artworks.
