Mathieu Mercier: Neither / Nor is a survey of work by the French artist Mathieu Mercier (born 1970) curated by Cay Sophie Rabinowitz. It will be on view from February 9 to March 7, 2017 at OSMOS Gallery. This is the first in a year-long series of projects that reflect on the 20 years OSMOS has been in existence.

Mathieu Mercier’s work operates somewhat whimsically between Walter Benjamin’s revolutionary exegesis and Duchampian transubstantiation. His art maneuvers to question a common object’s potential for authenticity in times of evident over-production while contrarily conferring value back onto such objects. This juxtaposition of multiple systems of representation is repeated throughout Mercier’s work, fluidly incorporating and opposing visual frameworks from art history, design, and architecture.

In 2003, Mathieu Mercier was honored with the prestigious Marcel Duchamp award. His solo museum shows include: Villa Merkel, Germany (2014); Kunstmuseum St Gallen, Switzerland (2014); Musee d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, France (2007); Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France (2003); Le Crédac, Centre d’Art Contemporain d’Ivry, France (2012); Foundation d’Entreprise Ricard d’Art Contemporain, Paris, France (2012); and Kunsthalle Nürmberg, Germany (2008), u.a.. OSMOS thanks Galerie Mehdi Chouakri and Paul Kasmin Gallery for their collaboration.
