MIKI AURORA

The art works that I produce extend across a variety of mediums, including performance, video, installation and found objects. Motivated by a vocational pull towards social sculpture, my works serve as a vehicle for presenting psychologically-based narratives, through a confessional microcosmic lens, and expounding on their relation to the collective social truths of the macrocosm. Often, the topics presented express a discourse on cyber-feminism, objectification, trauma and spirituality, and it is common for me to include elements of my private occult practice within my public oeuvre– specifically through the usage of ritual. My visual language is dotted with popular female archetypes from entertainment media, which I utilize as signifiers for various psychological undercurrents pervading modern Western society. These archetypal symbols function, in their modernity, as a visual tool for reformatting philosophical relics for understanding within our current social context.
