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 takes on an overarching interest in the ways in which the ubiquity, commonality and universal language of this material connects us globally together. Her work is rooted in topics of embodiment, material value, and socio-political and emotional discourses situated in and around cloth. 

 

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.
