In her work Myriam Mechita uses a wide variety of media such as drawings, sculptures, books and installations.
“Life, death, suffering, pleasure, are ambivalent concepts that collide in my work, as in everyday life. My achievements are always contradictory. There are pearls and glitter, of course, but there are also drawings made with a drill and other very crude creations. What interests me is the tension between the appearance of things and what is hidden at first glance. I constantly oscillate between sophistication and radicalism. I’m trying to figure out how to bring these extremes together. “
