Meryem Meg is an Algerian / Bulgarian multidisciplinary artist based in London, raised between Paris and the UK. This is her second solo exhibit.

About

At the core of her craft, she aims to explore indigenous methods of mark making through a diasporic lens. Drawing upon her African + European heritage, often finding herself exercising subconscious healing through the depiction of themes such as fertility, birth, and cycles within nature. Repetition and rhythm are what further drive the basis of Meryem’s practice, all tied together against an urban backdrop. 

The show brings together 12 paintings reclaiming a visual heritage and counterbalancing cultural appropriation and the commodification of “tribal patterns”. Looking into their ability to transcribe systems of knowledge and to create narratives by highlighting them in a contemporary and personal context. 

The night will be co-hosted by Barbedoun A traveling bar based on a philosophy of alcohol-free alchemy. Experimenting with culinary arts and the reclaiming cultural absences.
