Introducing: Meijers + Walsh

Residency Dates: July 8-14, 2013

Meijers + Walsh are Mish Meijers and Tricky Walsh (http://henripapin.tumblr.com/).
Tricky Walsh is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice is concerned with the integration of mysticism with scientific reasoning. Her work, which is architectural in nature, and broadly spatial in practice utilises the construction of concepts and devices which allow for the development of both physical and philosophical systems of discovery and invention. She is represented by Bett Gallery, Hobart, Tasmania.

Walsh maintains a distinct solo practice in addition to her collaborative works with artist Mish Meijers. They have undertaken residencies in Jogjakarta, Paris and New York and have exhibited internationally and throughout Australia.

Mish Meijers is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice experiments in surface tensions: how one material conforms or abrades against the matter of another. Whether in actuality, or within conceptual content, she distorts the inherent worth and significance of her objects with regard to popular culture, gender determination and functionality, in an alchemic and at times discordant sensibility to construct her sculptural tableaux.

Meijers + Walsh are in their seventh year of collaborative practice with their primary project: Henri Papin – the Collector; a superfiction which examines aspects of social anthropology through the development of an obsessive character and his psychological schema within a series of large scale sculptural installations.
