Using photography and video, she engages with social and political topics to re-frame these matters in new ways. Mirelle Borra seeks to examine structures of representation through a transnational perspective while staying in constant dialog with the context from which the work is derived. The main focus of her practice is where the personal and the political intersect.
She has shown her work internationally in art festivals and exhibitions, including 3rd FRACTO Experimental Film Encounter, Berlin (DE), 39th Ars Electronica Festival, Linz (AT), 3rd Screen City Biennial, Stavanger (NO), 8th FUSO Annual International Video Art Festival, Lisbon (PT), 59th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen (DE) and the 7th Berlin Biennial, KW Institute for Contemporary Art (DE), among others. In 2017, she founded the online platform 6x6 project which is dedicated to the dissemination of artists’ moving image works, and to create an ever-growing network among peers. Mirelle Borra was born in the Netherlands, and after living in New York City for many years, she is currently based in Berlin.
