Felipe Meres

(this page was last updated in July 2017)


Petrópolis, Brazil, 1988.
Lives and works in New York, USA.

PIPA 2016 and 2017 nominee.

Felipe Meres’ installations, photographs, films and sculptures articulate slippery entanglements between scientific desire and the indeterminate matters that never cease to evade it. Often departing from anthropological approaches to seemingly incommensurate aspects of the world, such as asexual reproduction, the pharmaceutical industry, quantum particle behavior and highly regenerative life forms, Meres’ work invites us to reconsider the patterns of difference that we weave to make sense of the objects, bodies, and behaviors around us.
