MIKI AURORA




thegift

The works that I produce extend across a variety of mediums, including performance, video, installation and film. Motivated by a vocational pull towards social sculpture, my works serve as a vehicle for presenting psychologically-based narratives through a 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, spirituality, and trauma, and it is common for me to include elements of my personal occult practice within my public oeuvre—particularly through the usage of ritual. My visual language is dotted with popular female archetypes from entertainment media, which I use as totems for various psychological undercurrents pervading modern Western society. These archetypal symbols function, in their modernity, as a visual tool for reformatting primordial truths for understanding within our current social and political context.
