Mike Meiré – NORTH-WEST

North America, as a place of contradictions: reality and idealism, departure and exclusion, progress and fatality.


From July 27, 2019 until September 6, 2019
Von Bartha S-chanf announces NORTH – WEST, a solo exhibition from German artist, designer and art director Mike Meiré. The show presents paintings from the ongoing series CAR TIRE PAINTINGS (2014-2019) alongside ceramic work.
The exhibition refers to today’s North America, as a place of contradictions: reality and idealism, departure and exclusion, progress and fatality. Meiré’s ceramics and paintings reflect on the romanticised idea of freedom while simultaneously confirming its very failure. ‘North-West’ therefore becomes a metaphor of the search for freedom and identity.
