Côme di Meglio

Côme di Meglio is a visual artist, born in 1988 in Paris. He lives and works in Marseille.

“My creative process begins with an attention to the environment. A recognition of the terrain gives rise to an exploration of the available material, its often unrecognized and unsuspected properties and qualities. These are as well sensory, organic, and symbolic, and capable of making our physical dimension resonate. I summon the essential elements to all forms of life, earth, fire, water and clouds, the breath of orality. I harvest and I weave plants. I grow mushrooms to create building materials. Food also has a central place in my practice, symbolizing the transformations of matter that operate around us, and from which we derive our energy. “
