Lucie Meyer

‘Marche vers l’Univers’

'Mon Mellah'.  My grandfather, sitting cross-legged, a thich yellowed Talmud on his lap, my house, cluttered with bits and pieces from sewing, my memory worn to a thread, bruised, and… reassembled

Lucie Meyer was born in Rabat, Morocco in 1942. For 15 years she has been creating tapestries. Later, she gradually went to work on old books, that she transformed into kind of “Universes with tiny figures”. Then to create assemblages and sculptures out of all sorts of poor, old materials, often from mountain villages, sometimes raw, and sometimes casted in bronze. Hay drying structures on mountain barns, or Indian wooden scaffoldings often inspired her, too. Lucie is fascinated by materials, which have had a previous life of their own. They meet each other. Her subconscious takes control. It also expresses itself in paintings of hers. Lucie has exhibited in Paris, New York and Holland. Francois Mitterand personally bought one of her sculptures for the “Palais de l’Elysee”. So did the “Musee d’Art Juif” and the “Hotel des Monnaies” in Paris.
