Merzedes Sturm-Lie (1991, based in Brussels/BE and Stockholm/SE) is a multimedia artist and curator. In her work she investigates history as a spiral of infinite construction and de(con)struction. When producing works she searches for ways to understand the complexity of power and to question that which appears natural, but is in fact a construction. She studied at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm and has co-founded several artist-run spaces in both Brussels (Swallowing Helmets, Espace0IN) and Stockholm (Sekten, Konstattack).
