ARTIST STATEMENT

Through a critically, socially and materially engaged approach to research of woven textiles, Mia’s work stems from interrogating the ubiquity, gendered history and material language of cloth. Dedicated to uncovering its emotional potency and capacity to speak of human experiences and beliefs across time, Mia’s work is rooted in topics of embodiment, value systems, and metaphoric dimensions of cloth and the act of weaving.     

 

Studying everyday fabric on a magnified material scale, through the enlargement, manipulation and exposure of woven structures, Mia’s multidisciplinary, and often site-specific, forms and installations, 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.
