About Mezli Vega
Mexican visual artist, photographer, who lives in France and Mexico since 2000. She obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Marseille in 2007. The following year, she wins a grant, Jóvenes Creadores from the FONCA in Mexico. As a selected artist in residence at Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Photographie d'Arles between 2009 and 2010, she continued to develop her conceptual approach. In 2011, she receives the award of La Maison Blanche and Phot'Aix Public Award and in 2014 the Award QPN in Nantes, France.
Her work has been shown internationally in France, Germany, Serbia, The Netherlands, Thailand and Mexico.
She also has published works in the press (Télérama, Picnic Magazine, El País) and she has collaborated with international Festivals such as the Festival International du Cinéma de Marseille.
Through her work, she questions the authenticity of images. Her photos evolve from a choreographed scene to a quasi-documentary approach. A certain ambiguity remains between straight forward documentation and construction. The line is blurred and the viewer is confronted with poetic moments.
