Stage design by SOPHIE LE MEILLOUR Website
Sophie Le Meillour is a media artist based in Geneva. In 2011, she graduated in graphic design and video from the HEAD (Haute Ecole d’Art et de Design) in Switzerland. She is composing her own raw material from traditional disciplines to deploy a sensitive storytelling through live compositions and performances. Since 2009, she has been exploring the multiple facets of the image, from the line and movement to new media and film footage. Through her drawings, photographs, videos and installations, she is developing her own immersive and dreamlike work which she shares with the musical and visual universes of fellow artists. Materials and textures are at the core of her experiments. However, she manhandles them in her very own peculiar way throughout her different projects.
