Corinne Mercadier began her photographic work in the 1980s and has been a pioneer in the experimentation of the medium ever since. With a degree in Plastic Arts and a diploma in Art History, she deploys a protean reflection in her photographs, which crosses drawing, painting on glass, volume work or staging. In nearly 40 years of creation, her photographic imagination has become a reference for several generations of artists.
After Laurent Millet, the arrival of Corinne Mercadier is part of the Binome Gallery's desire to question the genesis of contemporary practices at the heart of its research and which are helping to redefine the field of photography.
In three unpublished bodies of work, from 1987 to 2022, this first exhibition of Corinne Mercadier at the Binome Gallery illustrates the remarkable place of the artist in the medium's capacity for regeneration.
Dedicated to contemporary photography, the Binome Gallery opened in 2010 in the Marais district of Paris. Alongside an annual programme of solo and group exhibitions, it regularly participates in international contemporary art and photography fairs. A member of the Professional Committee of Art Galleries, Galerie Binome has developed numerous collaborations with personalities from the world of art and photography, curators, private and public institutions.
It opens its programming to emerging and established artists of contemporary art. The selection is more specifically oriented towards the visual arts in search of new forms in photography. Coming from various horizons, from conceptual or plastic photography, sculpture, performance, drawing or writing, the artists explore the boundaries of the medium and the supports. The definition of the photographic field, its extent and limits, are at the heart of the gallery’s research.
