Meryem Bayram graduated at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp as sculptor and studied scenography at POPOK in Antwerp. Since 2006 she works as artistic leader visual arts for Platform 0090.
In the work of Bayram the unfolding relation between human behaviour and a constructed spatial environment is the central driving force. With wood, cardboard and elastics... she creates installations that trace and reshape the outlines of physical space and – in a same gesture – challenge living bodies to inhabit and transform that space. By proposing specific encounters between body and material, she shapes and organizes tensions between the visible and invisible, the composed and improvised, proliferating connection points while constantly reinventing new obstacles.
