The joy and struggle of producing innovative light installations
Joanie Lemercier is a French artist primarily focused on projections of light in space and its influence on our perception. He was introduced to creating art on a computer at the age of five by attending classes on pattern design for fabrics taught by his mother. The threads of his early education grounded his interest in physical structures: geometry, patterns, and minimalist forms.
Since 2006 Lemercier has worked with projected light, and co founded the visual label AntiVJ in 2008, with Yannick Jacquet, Romain Tardy and Olivier Ratsi. Together, they worked on stage design for international festivals and large scale architectural projections all around the world.
In 2013, he founded a creative studio based in Brussels, focused on research and development of installations, gallery pieces and experiments using projected light in space.
