Mirelle Borra’s interest in urgent global subjects merges with her keen sense of aesthetic to create thought-provoking work. Using photography and video, she engages with social and political topics to re-frame these matters in new ways. Borra seeks to examine structures of representation through a transnational perspective while staying in constant dialog with the context from which the work is derived.
She will be participating in the upcoming Screen City Biennial in Stavanger, Norway, 2017. Mirelle Borra recently founded an online platform dedicated to distribution and promotion of time-based media art: https://6x6project.com. Borra was born in the Netherlands, and after living in New York City for many years, she is currently based in Berlin.
