Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Mériol Lehmann

Artist

Quebec, Quebec, Canada
Born in Switzerland but living in Quebec for many years, I'm an artist working mainly with photography and sound art. Whether performances or installations, my works have been presented at numerous artists-run centers, festivals and other venues, both in Canada, Europe and Japan. I'm currently working on a systems-thinking approach to territory. I'm also a sound designer, as well as a consultant for audio recording and media arts. After several years as Avatar's director, an artists-run center dedicated to audio & electronic art, I'm currently working on a MFA at Université Laval.
