BIO
Myriam Gras' multidisciplinary artistic practice includes photography, sculpture, installation and documentation as research methods. The practice focuses on site-specific relationships and infrastructures, including ecological change, labour-driven production systems and transnational narratives, and where a relational and process-based approach to matter plays an integral role.

Material is used in ways that highlight the intrinsic values and sensibilities of these connections, and exist in a literal and metaphorical state of becoming. The work is based on facts and research, but is transported into the realm of the imagination. Through its entanglement in different temporal and geographical settings, the work becomes the carrier of a transformative moment that taps into different knowledge systems, aiming to transcend specific domain-related knowledge and language.

By making relational transformations visible, or part of them, Gras explores how we can further approach relationships and contribute to the broader debate about our drive for progress. It questions our current and future navigation through our surrounding ecosystems in all their layers.
