Matthieu Leger

Matthieu Leger’s work explores ideas of the creative psychological space. Navigating world history, symbols, semiotics and metaphor, Matthieu presents us with fabricated imaginary places not bound to the confines of our given reality.

Presented almost as multi-layered maps, puzzles or cyphers, waiting to be solved, Matthieu’s work allows for a mysterious, imaginative and open interpretation to unfold within the viewer.
