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. The main focus of her practice is where the personal and the political intersect.
In 2017, she founded an online platform dedicated to the distribution and promotion of artists’ moving image works: .
Her work has shown internationally in art festivals and exhibitions, including 3rd FRACTO Experimental Film Encounter, Berlin (DE), 39th Ars Electronica Festival, Linz (AT), 3rd Screen City Biennial, Stavanger (NO), 8th FUSO Annual International Video Art Festival, Lisbon (PT), 59th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen (DE) and the 7th Berlin Biennial, KW Institute for Contemporary Art (DE) among others. Mirelle Borra was born in the Netherlands, and after living in New York City for many years, she is currently based in Berlin.
