MYRIAM MIHINDOU

Thursday, June 20, 2019 - Sunday, June 30, 2019

Working in a realm that is defined by the overlapping fields of photography, video, painting and sculpture, Myriam Mihindou’s oeuvre is created from memory, imagination and the accurate of cultural shifts; all residing somewhere in the tension between autobiographical reference points and poetically immersed biomorphic structures. Mihindou has built a compelling body of works and visual experiments: an oeuvrage that concentrates on the relationship between “flesh and body”, physical language and its specific tension towards beauty and its convulsive, yet sometimes vivid shocking dimension, to the intimacy expressed by rituals, and to the sensitivity inscribed in the power of organic and natural materials. Yet, Mihindou’s work does not express any influence by the conflation of Body art and logic of image construction as practiced in the established artistic currents of the 80s and 90s in the West. The artist has developed her original poetic approach directing her attention with a clearly obsessive and rigorous immersion in the questions of being, physical codes, taboos, and those visual aspects that move old and contemporary traditions.
