Over the last fifteen years or so, Vincent Meessen (b. Baltimore, US, 1971) has been developing a body of work at the boundary between the fields of art and research. In mobilising signs, images and hidden narratives in new narratives, his works offer a contemporary reanimation of history both poetic and polemical, through different media such as video, the printed image and sound. The historical document is always subjected to the test of the present, often returned to its original geographical context.
