Théo Mercier

Théo Mercier’s sculptures and photographs turn found objects into surreal anthropomorphic figures–grotesque, sexual, emotional, or absurdly humorous. He has added expressive eyes to hay, books, bedsheets, even smoke from a fireplace. Larger than life sculpture, Le Solitaire (2010) is a melancholic blue eyed monster made entirely of spaghetti. Often Mercier groups his assemblages to form hierarchies or families, as in Imaginary Anthropology, a body of work that examines gender, family, and indigenous culture by ambiguously recreating wood and pottery craft from an imaginary tribe or geography.


He has had solo exhibitions at Lille 3000, Galerie Gabrielle Maubrie in Paris, and the Fondation d'entreprise Ricard in Paris. His work has been presented in group exhibitions at institutions in Paris such as Musee d’Art Moderne, Georges Pompidou, Palais de Tokyo, La Maison Rouge, and MACVAL, among others.​
