Michaela Meise
German, b. 1976

Incorporating elements of sculpture, installation, photography, and video, Michaela Meise’s eclectic practice is characterized by a “loaded nonchalance”, as one reviewer put it. Her sculptures transform furniture pieces into explorations of balance or unsettling vehicles for the display of idiosyncratic objects, including figurines, photographs, and books. Meise’s New York debut incorporated her various reactions to the themes and conflicts presented by the city: It included wall sculptures of cutout hearts (an homage to the ubiquitous “I [heart] New York” trope), photographs of a dance performance in Central Park, minimalist sculptures, and a film that interspersed footage of sites of antiquity with shots of Neoclassical architecture in New York.
