HD video - 2016 - 03:35 min Justin Meekel (b. 1986, Paris) is an artist working in Paris and the cofounder of DOC (Paris). In 2010, he has completed an MA in Fine Arts at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Cergy. Form appears spontaneously, not quite chosen ahead, and its completion is not a goal in Justin Meekel’s work. Besides, he often concedes that he has not created it directly - it comes from elsewhere. The artist uses methods from popular art, folk or more generally from society, distorting their primary meaning: his doctor’s prescription (Testament), a hip-hop video (Validée), drawings made by amateurs (Guess Who) or the Staten Island Ferry (Dompanach) and attempts to give them a new poetical purpose. Justin Meekel has exhibited in such venues as : Triangle (Marseille), CAPC (Bordeaux), La Salle de Bains (Lyon), Mains D’Oeuvre (Saint-Ouen), Treize (Paris).
