Joël Andrianomearisoa

Joël Andrianomearisoa

born in 1977 in Antananarivo (Madagascar)

« The work arises from various manipulations that lead me to the final result. When I set up an installation, I do not imagine its finality. I know the elements that compose it, but in the intant I set them up I discover something else.» JA
Andrianomearisoa is always on the edges. He does not approach his work in a direct way, but places it at the boundaries of the desires of whomever discovers it. His work comes down to a question of posture. In every piece he aims to find various shades of colors as well as various attitudes of them. Each color and its attitude do not exclude the rest: if every color can embody a wave of emotions, it also gives the artist freedom to deconstruct the structure of the work. Black, milestone in the work of the artist, is the link between this accumulation of variety and overlapping. Black is handled by the artist as a color of infinite possibilities and shades. This color is designed, tested, constantly challenged, reinterpreted and renewed to become one and, at the same time, a thousand different colors.
Born in 1977 in Antananarivo, Madagascar, Joël Andrianomearisoa studied at the Ecole Speciale d’Architecture, Paris, France. His works have been recently exhibited for "The White Hunter", at Frigoriferi Milanesi Art Center For Contemporary Art, Milan, Italy and for "Le la tour du monde" at Galeries Lafayette (Dome), Paris, France both in 2017, then for "The Divine Comedy" at the National Museum of African Art, Washington DC, US (2015) as for many other shows. In 2019  he represents Madagascar to the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. Andrianomearisoa is currently living and working between Paris and Antananarivo.
