Nadège Mériau

MA work

When I think about immersion, I think about Romanticism and the Sublime, but my practice investigates whether it is possible to create images that are immediate and immersive at the same time; close-ups that are also landscapes, sculptural forms that are also spaces that the viewer can dwell in.


Worms are interesting to me as a metaphor for a more embedded and embodied way of being in the world.


By inserting my camera into edible chambers carved out of flora or bread, I seek to embody the worm’s imagined perspective, through which new architectural propositions can emerge.
