Nadege Meriau


Nadege presents a quirky vision of the world that imbues everyday objects and locations with a sense of heroic drama.

Her unique style combines a low vantage point and extreme close-up, with the power and influence of colour and texture.

A well-known and respected commercial photographer creating stunning campaigns for the likes of Lurpak, Ribena, Innocent & Pedigree.

Nadege studied at the Royal College of Art, she regularly presents art workshops at the Tate, tutors at Bournemouth and exhibits internationally.

The Tate wants to support students gain a deeper enjoyment and understanding of art through working with practicing artists and the Tate collection. Students encounter artwork alongside their teachers and artists; sharing thinking and ideas to create a unique and diverse learning context designed to encourage individuals to engage with art and contemporary culture.

Demimonde Amberwood House SW7

91Demimonde, curated by Slate Projects and Mottahedan Projects, is an exhibition of 31 young artists, including imagery from Nadege Meriau, held in historic Amberwood House.

Located opposite the Victoria & Albert Museum, the house is the former residence of Dame Margot Fonteyn, prima ballerina assoluta of the Royal Ballet.

Scheduled for renovation at the end of January, Amberwood House is a unique exhibition setting, with a number of rooms distributed over three floors. Demimonde invites an exploration of the house in its transitional state through a sequence of curated rooms and site-specific installations in a variety of media, from painting and sculpture to video and photography.
The French word for ‘half-world’, in the nineteenth century ‘demi-monde’ referred to a social milieu ambiguously located between high and low culture. Demimonde touches on the in-between status of Amberwood House itself, as well as the tension between art and commerce, irony and sincerity, digital and analogue, past and future, process and concept, pop and highbrow which characterises much of contemporary creation.
