Hometown: Paris

Melchior Tersen is a French multidisciplinary artist, working mainly with photography, publishing projects, clothing, and music. Having spent his entire life in the Parisian suburbs, Tersen is vastly inspired by diverse youth, popular and underground movements of contemporary society, which he has documented for the past fifteen years. His work is an iconic reference when it comes to the documentation of underground cultural com- munities. Recently, Tersen expanded his photographic practice by approaching the language of object making.

Tersen’s recent exhibition projects include “Cardigan Show” at agnès b., 2020 (New york and Shanghai), entrance, 2019 (New york), 22 Ludlow, 2019 (New york), “Le Rolling Paper with Red Lebanese” at Le Bal, 2019 (Paris), and “Manifesto” at Lafayette Anticipations, Printing Room, 2019 (Paris).
