  • ジョエル・アンドリアノメアリソア

Joël Andrianomearisoa was born in Antananarivo, Madagascar in 1977. He currently lives and works between Antananarivo and Paris. He explores many disciplines, from fashion to design, video to photography, scenography to architecture, installations to visual arts. His works are often made from textiles, paper, sometimes wood, minerals, or from unexpected objects that causes a non-explicit and abstract emotion and stories, which people perceive yet cannot describe in words.

He achieves lots of attention as one of the international contemporary African artists in the global art scene. In 2019, he represented Madagascar to the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia and he has participated in different Biennials like Biennial de la Habana, Cairo Biennial, Dakar Biennial and 22nd Biennale of Sydney, which was held in March 2020. Throughout his career, his work has been shown at many prestigious international cultural institutions such as the Maxxi in Roma, the Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin, the Smithsonian in Washington, the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Dallas Contemporary in Dalls among many others. In 2016, he received the Arco Madrid Audemars Piguet Prize. His works have been attracting lots of audience and people in the global art world including the huge installation project in the Encounters section of Art Basel in Hong Kong 2019 and the special exhibition “Woven” at Frieze London 2019, which was curated by Cosmin Costinas.
