Myriam DAO is a Visual Artist. Architect by training, she also has a Master in Cultural Geography (EHESS). Her work questions her intimate history and geography, that of « Eurasia ». She seeks to present two kinds of truths: the truth of the body or physical space and that of the imagination. So she juxtaposes pictures from the Archive as well as pictures from her own ethnographical and vernacular personal corpus.
Myriam Dao received an award: Villa Medicis hors les murs (1995). Her work has been shown at many exhibitions in France, such as: Is Yellow Black or White? #2 Parcours d’art contemporain «Les uns chez les autres» Paris (2013); Is Yellow Black or White? #1 Mois de la Photo-OFF Paris (2012); Le regard éloigné – Bibliothèque Claude Lévi-Strauss Paris (2011); J’interviens – Galerie Le 29 – Mois de la Photo-OFF Paris (2010).
