Emerging Fields, 2013
Miriam Simun makes creative disruptions: images, actions and objects that poke, provoke and re-imagine current systems. Based in scientific, historical and ethnographic research, much of her work interrogates the implications of socio-technical-environmental change. Simun’s work spans mediums, including video, installation, sculpture, performance, food and scent. She has shown her work internationally, including the Museum of Arts and Design, New York; Minneapolis Institute for the Arts, Minnesota; Kappatos Gallery, Athens; and Concordia University, Montreal.
