Mathieu Mercier was born near Paris in 1970. He lives and works in Paris. In his work he investigates the place of the object both in the consumer industries and in the artistic field. His research is animated by an on-going questioning of the symbolic and utilitarian function of objects. His practice reactivates some elements of the modernist legacy in another political and formal system.
