Announcing Representation of Mahsa Merci

Mayten’s Projects is pleased to welcome Mahsa Merci to the gallery. Merci is an experimental artist who is seeking new forms of expression. She combines a multitude of elements in order to encourage dialogue between the viewers and the work, frequently challenging the viewers to explore ideas of identity and gender differentiation and generally,

the mining of beauty. In the topics and themes, she examines through painting, collages, sculpture, and installation, and sometimes all of the above, she aims at creating a space where the viewer is confronted with thought-provoking visuals and meanings. Her choices of juxtaposing materials that she considers with each project are crucial in determining the message that Merci intends to deliver. Her works often measure the definitions of aesthetics in social relations and society.

New work by Merci will be featured in the gallery’s solo exhibition this October.

Mahsa Merci, born in Tehran, Iran, holds a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design from Tehran University of Art and a Master of Painting from Azad University in Iran. Currently, she is studying a Master of Fine Arts at the University of Manitoba.
