Joanie Lemercier

Joanie is a French artist primarily focused on projections of light in space and its influence on our perception. The threads of his early education grounded his interest in physical structures: geometry, patterns, and minimalist forms. As his work evolved, he began to play with these concrete structures through the physics and philosophy of how light can be used to manipulate perceived reality. Since 2006 he has worked with projected light, and he co founded visual label AntiVJ in 2008, with artists Yannick Jacquet, Romain Tardy and Olivier Ratsi. Together, they worked on stage design for international festivals and worked alongside artists on custom stage designs, and large scale architectural projections all around the world.
In 2010, Lemercier turned his focus on installations and gallery work, exhibited at China Museum of Digital Art, (Beijing), Art Basel Miami and Sundance film festival.
In 2013, Lemercier founded a creative studio focused on research and development of artworks and experiments using projected light in space. He is represented by Muriel Guepin Gallery in New York City.
