Originally from Canada, Mike Schertzer is an artist, a writer, and a scientist based in Paris, France. He has published numerous books of poetry, experimental writing, as well as an ongoing 30 year project of a personal journal in dictionary format. As a visual artist he has exhibited his unique collages on glass in Canada and France. His literary and artistic activity is accompanied by my scientific pursuits, which presently find him occupied as a researcher at the Institut Curie in Paris.

His artistic practice also includes performances and literary interventions  in public spaces. Such  performances aim to expose our incessant confrontation with the ephemeral, and to manifest  the sentiment that all our efforts, often futile, sometimes heroic, seek to resist effacement by finding refuge in significance.


D’origine canadienne, je suis artiste, mais aussi écrivain et scientifique. J’ai écrit des livres de poésie, des écrits expérimentaux, ai exposé mes collages et mes livres d’artiste au Canada, poursuit depuis 30 ans un projet de dictionnaire de mes cahiers personnels, tout en travaillant comme chercheur en biologie moléculaire à l’Institut Curie à Paris.

Ma pratique artistique inclut des performances et des interventions littéraires dans des lieux publics, qui mettent en évidence notre incessante confrontation avec l’éphémère, ainsi que nos efforts, tantôt futiles, tantôt héroïques, à résister à l’impermanence et à trouver refuge dans la permanence et la signifiance.
