In his artistic practice, Meier interweaves individual, autobiographical, and sociopolitical issues. The consequences of abrupt social changes, caused by the collapse of real existing socialism, are the starting point for his critical reflections. Coming from photography, he expands the medium to include sculpture, video, text and spatial installation interventions. Detached from pure depiction, he approaches his themes through the material, combining hard surfaces, fragile objects and abstract images. From the failures of the 90s and 00s in reunited Germany, he draws psychologising conclusions about the current political situation. Questions of social identity, nostalgia, belonging, failure, and doubt are repeatedly raised in his works.

Eric Meier’s works have been exhibited in numerous venues such as Halle 14–Center for Contemporary Art, Leipzig, at fructa space Munich, at HGB Gallery Leipzig, at the prelude to the Transmediale Festival Berlin, AEG Nuremberg and in the Hoffmann Collection in Berlin.
