Bio

Michael Mersinis is an artist whose work revolves around the utopian imaginary and the sense of place. Using photography’s elusive relationship with reality and its indexical qualities, his work superimposes the projected qualities of places with the real, mainly through the mediums of photography and sculpture. 

By utilising the methods of travelling and picture-making and combining them with the Presocratic philosophical ideas of primary material, he is interested in the enduring qualities of history and the effects on contemporary notions of place. He currently teaches at The Glasgow School of Art Fine Art Photography Department in both Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses.
