Dietrich Meyer

Dietrich Meyer is a US artist who lives and works in Berlin, Germany. Recent exhibitions include Babel (Berlin) and NCCA (St. Petersburg), as well as a forthcoming solo exhibition at The Landing Strip (Berlin) in September. He is a founding member of High Tide, a project space based in Philadelphia, PA. Dietrich works with plants that inhabit our spaces and the structures built to contain them. Dealing with the development of organisms around constructed geometrical environments, the conflict between organic growth and human precision become temporal structures in constant flux of floral expansion. Material, both natural and artificial, becomes a way of highlighting the complexities in notions such as labor, class, colonialism, human intervention, and climate.
