Na Mira

Artadia Awardee

“Mira’s projects about the work and legacy of Theresa Hak Kyung Cha explore how ‘fragmentation is the truest form of witness.’ Mira’s layered experimental work is visionary and extremely profound. Language, memory, and archive are the source materials for her research-based shamanism as she connects time and space through transmission.”- Selene Preciado, Curator & Director of Programs, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions.

Na Mira lives in Los Angeles. Recent projects have been presented at Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, Company Gallery, and The Kitchen, New York; Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis; Museum of Contemporary Art, Tucson; Paul Soto and Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Croy Nielsen, Vienna; and Art Sonje Center, Seoul. Mira graduated from University of California Los Angeles and School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2022, Wendy’s Subway published the first collection of her writing.

Mira works at the edges of perception. Her films, videos and sculpture engage animism to denaturalize the historically produced apparatus of image making. Through installations drawing from Asian ancestral technologies, Structural film, and phenomenology, multiple vanishing points open a dimension beyond representation.
