Wesley Meuris’ work intersects with both architecture and scientific systems of consolidation and classification. He addresses concepts of conservation and engages in a rationalist understanding of space and knowledge. He produces such varied objects as zoological enclosures, hypothetical archives, museum furniture, and fictional exhibitions.
Meuris’ work has been the subject of several exhibitions and installations including the BF15 ( Contemporary Art Center) of Lyon (2014), at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam (2014), at the Casino of Luxembourg (2012), at the SMAK in Gand (2005), at the Royal Academy of Brussels (2010), at the Fresnoy in Tourcoing (2010), at the MAMAC in Liège (2010), and at the Art & Essai Gallery in Rennes (2010). He was also exhibited at the Jerôme Poggi gallery in 2013, in association with independant curator, Florence Ostende.
His work was presented by the Jérôme Poggi gallery on a monographic booth, on the occasion of Art Brussels from April 25 to April 27.
A number of critics have written about Meuris, including Michel Dewilde, Lievan Van Den Abeele, Eva Wittocx, Jean Marc Huitorel, and Florence Ostende. His work has been the subject of several monographs.
