Born 1964 in Darmstadt, lives and works in Cologne
Mike Meiré describes his work as a continued investigation into everyday objects.
Central to all of Meiré’s work is a delicate interplay between highly refined against mundane everyday materials. Working gloves, buckets, slabs, daily newspapers, car tires, sub-groups from the globalized world of goods, the determination of which the artist calls into consciousness precisely through their recontextualization.
Within Meiré’s continuing work as a creative director, he has for many years navigated and in some cases deliberately trespassed the boarders between Branding, Design and Fine Art. Since 1999, Mike Meiré has been working as Art Director of various international magazines, such as brand eins, 032c, BLAU and ARCH+ as well as GARAGE, Kunstforum and Cahiers D’Art. His solo and group exhibitions include Das Bauhaus #allesistdesign (Bundeskunsthalle, Bonn and Tel Aviv, Museum of Art, Israel, 2016), Outside The Visible (Bartha Contemporary, London, 2016) In/Human (MARCO Museum of Contemporary Art, Monterrey, Mexico, 2014), Köln Material (Figge Von Rosen Galerie, Berlin, 2014), Conflicts and Holes (von Bartha, Basel, 2013), Economy of Attention (Bartha Contemporary, London, 2012), and Mortal Life (Installation, Museion Bozen, Italy, 2007).
