History, geography and technology – these are the filters Adrien Missika uses to question our relationship with space and the environment. Missika employs both digital and traditional techniques in his art and combines his own experiences with expectations, déjà-vu, and fantasies. In his exhibition at the 21er Raum he is experimenting with living organisms and minerals to reflect the future phenomenon of islands sinking.
Adrien Missika was born in Paris in 1981 and lives and works in situ. His works have been shown in many solo and group exhibitions, including recently in Paris at Bugada & Cargnel, Palais de Tokyo, Centre Pompidou and Centre Culturel Suisse, as well as at Metro Pictures in New York, Fotomuseum Winterthur, Kunsthaus Glarus, and Galerie Édouard-Manet de Gennevilliers.
