MYRIAM MIHINDOU

In linguistics, etymology consists of searching for and understanding the roots of a word, and revealing the relationship between the sound (the utterance) and the word (the signifier). This association has long been experienced as a trauma by Myriam Mihindou. For several years, the artist has immersed herself in etymological research to “raise my salt lick” and succeed in identifying things, going beyond borders, and creating images and representations. From childhood, she was fascinated by dictionaries and encyclopaedias. In particular, she devoured the medical works of her mother, who was director of a hospital. Through reading and observing anatomical charts, she discovered the human body in all its splendour, and learned about diseases and microbes.

Myriam Mihindou’s work knows no boundaries, literally or figuratively. From high jumping to architecture, via the Bordeaux School of Fine Arts, her training deploys several spaces of expression.

The preparation of the exhibition took place in Meisenthal, not far from the French-German border. In this territory of edges, she creates new works. Myriam Mihindou identifies the crossbreeding of languages, the incongruities, the disamours. The German language interacts with the French language, two cultures form an alliance through words. She notes what she calls “the schizophrenia of language” where one word can hide another, it contains a binarity where meanings combine and contradict each other.

Performance, understood as a practice in which the body is both the tool and the screen of a thought, can be seen as the thread of a cathartic artistic creation.
