In her work Meris Angioletti investigates the relationship between mental mechanisms and linguistic forms, revelation and concealment, and film space as a ritual space, all derived from various kind of narrative schemes. Her work (video, performance, photographs, collage, tapestry), has always dwelt in the indistinct space between art and science, a space where it is difficult to distinguish creative process from scientific method.
Meris Angioletti was born in Bergamo in 1977. She lives and works in Paris.
