Miwa Matreyek creates live multimedia performances combining the artist's own shadow silhouette in interaction with fantastical animations of her own making, merging film and theater in a unique kind of storytelling spectacle.
This World Made Itself is a visually and musically rich journey through the history of the earth, from the universe's epic beginnings to the complex world of humanity. The piece is at once semi-scientific (like flipping through a children's encyclopedia), and emotional, surreal, and dream-like.
In Myth and Infrastructure Matreyek traverses oceanscapes and cityscapes as she explores the creativity and dreaming we can find in our own domestic spaces.
