LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
Joyce Menger is born in The Netherlands and moved to France at the age of 18 and lived since in Paris. As much as her varied cultural background, her career path is pluri-disciplinary in the audiovisual field.
Starting as a VFX digital artist for feature films, she assumed very quickly the position of a VFX producer at Ã‰clair Laboratoires where she had the chance to work on highly acclaimed films such as The Pianist, Kingdom of Heaven or March of the Penguins.
Even if her profession satisfied her plainly, she needed to fulfill her more personal creative needs. The former gallery Thibault de Chastenet exposed her paintings Les Pepettes in 2008. A modern interpretation of The girl with the pearl earring was bought by the director Doug Liman in New York.
In 2010, she stepped out of the full VFX path heading to new opportunities of creative producing and post-producing in digital content. Aware of the impact of images on nowadays society, she adapted herself to the new requirements of brands, the different formats and new techniques and technologies needed to accompany them in their communication.
During this period, she has never stopped using her experience as a graphic artist for professional and personal use and continued to develop projects which she takes at heart.
She produced an animation film for the association Imagine for Margo, children against cancer with the students of Pole IIID in Roubaix.
In 2019 she starts a series of visuals with the theme of Horizons. She interrogates herself on the notion of the horizon as a marker, a perspective, an objective. And if the horizon disappears, will everything fall apart? Who will pick up the pieces? Will there be pieces to be picked up?
Her points of interests become more and more engaged.
Always on the lookout for new ways of communication, she develops nowadays, beside production and post-production missions, interactive immersive experiences with as major theme the preservation of the planet in order to awake an environmental awareness.
