ARTIST STATEMENT

Whilst engaging with social, bodily, and spatial theories, Mia’s practice situates around the complex and interconnected relationships we have with our everyday fabric.  

Through a critically, socially and materially engaged approach to research of woven textiles, Mia’s work stems from a formulative interest in the ways in which the ubiquity, commonality and material language of cloth acts as a tool for knowledge exchange and universal understanding of human experience. Her work is rooted in topics of embodiment, material value, and socio-political and emotional discourses situated in and around woven fabric. 

 

The multidisciplinary works, and often site-specific, sculptural forms and installations, she produces are offered as a space for re-imagining; for considering the depth of our relationships with cloth and the ontological effects of our engagements with it.
