Research Profile

A graduate of The Glasgow Schol of Art, Mersinis previously to coming to Glasgow studied Political Studies and Philosophy in Germany and History of Art and Photography in Greece. Currently Teaching in undergraduate and Postgraduate Programmes at the GSA, Mersinis is an artist whose practice is centered around the questioning of the Photographic Image, the notion of the place as eventual Site and the translations that occurs when the light comes into contact with a photosensitive surface. Current projects include a long project on the history, locality and imagination of fundamental typologies of place that are historically present and liminal and the pursuit of a political identity in the contemporary image.
