Myriam Mechita was born in 1974 in Strasbourg. She lives and works between Paris and Berlin in addition to teaching at the School of Fine Arts in Caen.
Myriam Mechita’s work captures the most contradictory feelings. Her work always places beauty alongside ugliness, the tangible alongside the mystical. The artist nourishes existential dualities, the tension of which is palpable and causes a feeling of strangeness. This discomfort is also felt in a treatment of space disturbed by depth or surface effects.
