Joanie Lemercier is a French artist primarily focused on projections of light in space and its influence on our perception. He was introduced to creating art on a computer at an early age by attending classes on pattern design for fabrics taught by his mother. The threads of his early education grounded his interest in physical structures: geometry, patterns and minimalist forms. As Lemercier’s 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. In 2008, he co-founded visual label AntiVJ with artists Yannick Jacquet, Romain Tardy and Olivier Ratsi. He worked on stage design for festivals, alongside musicians, as well as large scale architectural projections, all around the world. In 2010, Lemercier turned his focus on installations and gallery work, and exhibited in many art fairs. In 2013, he founded his creative studio, now based in Brussels, focused on research and development of installations, gallery pieces and experiments using projected light in space.
