Born in Italy in 1977, lives and works in Paris, where she is currently PhD researcher at Institut ACTE, Université Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne.
Rooted as much in the history of the arts—from the rst abstract works at the end of the 19th century to the “expanded cinema” theorized by Gene Youngblood in the 1970s—as in the cognitive sciences, psychology, and esoteric beliefs, Meris Angioletti's works question the mechanisms of perception, memory, voice and language.
She held personal exhibitions at ENSAPC YGREC, Paris (“L'Anneau et le livre”, 2017) at FRAC Champagne – Ardenne, Reims (“Le Grand jeu”, 2016), at Galerie – Centre d'art contemporain, Noisy-Le-Sec, in 2011 at the Fondazione Galleria Civica di Trento (“ I describe the Way and meanwhile I am proceeding along it”) and at GAMeC – Galleria Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Bergamo (“Ginnastica Oculare”), both in Italy, in 2009.
Her work has been exhibited worldwide, including at , and at Fondation d'entreprise Ricard in Paris (“Prix Ricard - Bonaventura. Tra quer les mondes”, 2021) at the 53th São Paulo Biennial (“Imminence of Poetics”, 2012), the 54th Venice Biennale (“IllumiNations”, 2011), the 5th edition of Nouveau Festival and at the Centre Pompidou (“L'oubli, le souvenir, la réminiscence”, 2014).
