Morgan Merrheim Artist Bio:

My paintings, photographs, drawings, are born in a context, break free from it, come back to me and take the colors of the present in accumulated layers, transparencies, remains of what was and that I wish to keep. My graphic culture is similar to these places occupied for a while by a collective, then another; a vacant lot or storehouse, offices or houses... Born during the manga explosion in France, in the suburbs, where people write strange pseudonyms on the walls, discovering later Basquiat and Miro's work, then wandering through museums and libraries, my life choice made in the middle of photography studies which I abandoned alongside literature, philosophy, a refusal of teaching faculties in favor of a solo learning and a work of memory, spirits and randomness, randomness for astonishment, see ink, substance live, take its place out of me but in front of me, the freedom and choice to conserve, take back, explode, change, without ever thinking to improve since everything has its value at a time and before defined eyes, and I know one thing too well, a feeling may be or not be in a same place and time. The human brain tends to diminish if it does not break free from worn out ideas, I jump from the Cobra family to the artists with whom I live, in recurrences or ruptures, leaving behind us frescoes, bits of paintings, pieces of life papers, alongside the pleasure of memories which others will wall in, guard and leave empty. 2013: Personal exhibition: "Morgan Merrheim à Bloc", JDC Galerie, Saint Prix Collective exhibitions and open door days of my workshop at the Bloc (Paris 19th) 2012: Collective exhibition « Coups de CÅ“ur », Galerie Les Etoilantes, Sucy-en-Brie Collective exhibition at « La Trappe aux Etoiles », Paris Collective exhibition « Ice Cream Kunstler Hause », Berlin Permanent exhibition at the « JDC Galerie », Saint Leu la forêt 2011 : Collective exhibition at the « Zoo », Paris Individual exhibition at « Lézard Be Assurément Humain » Paris Collective exhibitions at the « Château d'Albatard » Paris 2010 : Permanent exhibition at the « Artevistas » Galery, Barcelona Individual exhibition, Espace Numérique, Villereal (47) 2009 : Individual exhibition at La Miroiterie, Paris Performance exhibition in a professional cabinet Published in "Made in Banlieue", ed.
