Meris Angioletti

Meris Angioletti was born in 1977 in Bergamo, Italy. She is based in Paris and Milan. Angioletti graduated in Fine Arts from the Brera Academy in Milan. She was awarded the Premio New York/ISCP Residency (2009–2010) and the DRAC Aide Individuelle à la creation (2011). In 2011 Angioletti had solo exhibitions at Galleria Arte Moderna in Turin and La Galerie, Noisy-le-Sec. Her group exhibitions include the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011 and 30th Biennial of São Paulo in 2012.

At the heart of Meris Angioletti’s artistic practice stands what she calls the “circumstantial paradigm”, an idea from which she developed a research system to aid her examination of trace evidence. Her video and projection work is positioned between art and science, exploring the perceptive capabilities of the viewer, memory and the subconscious and the relations between physical and mental space. Angioletti experiments with the theory of expanded cinema; she explores the influence editing and colour have on the narrative of images, the readings they offer as well as the associations they carry. To that end, much of her work is language-based.

The new installation Angioletti has created for the PinchukArtCentre centres on a projection in which she gathers various medial aspects of her research, including narrative, editing, light and language.
