Lee-At Meyerov

South Africa 1977- 

Lee-At Meyerov was born in 1977 in Johannesburg, South Africa. She is a multidisciplinary artist who uses broken, discarded, readymade materials to create evocative installations and sculptures. Her background is rooted in fashion design, having studied, and lived abroad for many years. The body as both a presence and absence is a continues theme in her work. Meyerov graduated with a BA Fine Art from the University of the Witwatersrand and a MA Fine Art from the same university in 2007. She has participated on several group shows and art fairs including KKNK in Oudtshoorn, Aardklop Arts Festival, SculptX and Latitudes Art fair. She was selected as a finalist in the ABSA l’Atelier Competition, as well as a final exhibitor for “Sasol New Signatures”. Her works are included in the SASOL and ABSA collections as well as in other private collections. She is an independent artist, not represented by a gallery.

“My work involves a cumulative, labour-intensive process, whereby the relationship between the body and material is inextricably bound by time and memory. I work primarily with found, readymade often discarded objects and materials such as teabags, matches and masking tape, which through a process of accumulation, are transformed into large scale sculptural forms and installations. I am fascinated by the connotative and symbolic association of materials and our own visceral response evoked by their presence. My interest lies in the displacement of material from its original purpose through the repetitiveness of gesture in the quest to find a new materialism.

‘Aisthanomai – I Feel, I Sense, I Perceive’ is a deeply personal piece created during a time of emotional intensity in my life. Aisthanomai is a Greek word which means to perceive and to understand by means of both the bodily senses and the mind. This work is a life size piece which hangs like a tapestry, is reminiscent of an animal skin, fossilized remains or woven thread. The work is fragile yet surprisingly durable and resilient. It’s visceral and alive and makes me feel.”
