ARTIST STATEMENT
Myriam Gras' practice includes photography, installations and it's documentation in site-responsive installations as a way of doing research. The works address site-specific relationships and infrastructures, including transnational narratives, ecological mutation, global production and their aesthetic dimensions. Materials are used in ways that emphasise their inherent sensibilities and connections to both human and more-than-human developments. Bodies are situated, political, and at the same time always in relation as ongoing processes. The work exists in literal and metaphorical states of becoming.

I am concerned with site-specific relationships and infrastructures, including transnational narratives, ecological mutation, global production and their aesthetic dimensions, and how these distort rules in present and historical processes. By stimulating relational, unknown affects and changes, I attempt to explore how to approach these issues further and to contribute to the wider debate about our drive for progress.

In the interdisciplinary practice, artistic, curatorial and educational, projects are the bearers of a transformative moment: a transformation of knowledge situated in an experience. Encounters occur between art, artists and the individual. Through this approach, I try to question our current and future navigation through surrounding ecosystems, be it social, scientific, economical or technological.
