Andrianomearisoa, Joël
Born 1977 in Antananarivo, Madagascar
Lives and works between Paris, France and Antananarivo, Madagascar
Joël Andrianomearisoa’s multifarious works transgress the boundaries of video, fashion, design, sculpture, photography and installation. His works on paper and textile are perhaps the most indicative of his larger interests; the latter is imbued with an atmosphere that hovers enticingly between the ephemeral and the permanent. Often combining sculptural elements and materials exposed to particular situations and environments, shades of black dominate his work. Andrianomearisoa’s solo exhibition, (tba), has been shown internationally throughout 2018. He was selected for Afrique Capitales, 100% Afriques, La Villette, Paris (2017) and the 12th edition of Dak’Art – Biennale de l’Art Africain Contemporain, Dakar (2016), with his installation La Maison Sentimentale. Andrianomearisoa has participated in exhibitions at Zeitz MOCAA, Cape Town (2018); Musée d’Art Contemporain Africain Al Maaden (MACAAL), Marrakech (2016–17); the National Museum of African Art – Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC (2015); Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (2014) and Maison Revue Noire, Paris (2013). He was the 2016 recipient of the IV Audemars Piguet Award at ARCOmadrid, Madrid.
