Alicia Mersy

She says, "This bag [GURU LOVE] is dedicated to the teachings and wisdom of all the gurus I have met, the past 2 years during COVID-19 in the streets of New York City.” Her work uses the camera to connect people to the divine, by forging pathways towards personal and collective peace. She is attracted to free spirits, radicals, and revolutionaries. Alicia creates space for conversations through video, documentary, photography and installations. Her work has been exhibited internationally in spaces like the Institute of Contemporary Arts (United Kingdom), Migros Museum of Contemporary Art (Switzerland) and UQ Art Museum (Australia).
