in/tangible – exhibition at The Cube


Last week I opened a solo show at The Cube at ASC Croydon in London. It will run until the 28th of June 2023.

Exhibition Content

In this exhibition I am showing works that reflect how chronic and ongoing states of pain, struggle, distress and many other experiences can shift the sense we have of our own bodies. More than that, they make us rethink what a body even is and how human beings strive to feel or not feel it. The exhibited artworks emerge out of a dialogue with this shifting sense and wonderment. 

Rather than a result, the works are a trace of a process of creation. 
This process goes back and forth between sensing my body in movement and composing imaginary landscapes. Part of this process is also being in conversation with people, friends and experts. The emerging landscapes form anatomies which negotiate: tension and release, strength and softness, tangible and intangible parts of myself and others, the present moment and moments to come.

The exhibition is connected to a show and performance happening at June 3rd/4th at ASC Project Space. For more information click here (link opens in a new tab).

Some information about The Cube

ASCs The Cube was installed in its Croydon Grafton Rd studios in 2020. It is a bespoke exhibition structure that is a sister space to its original M2 gallery in Peckham, London.
 M2 Gallery was designed and created by the late artist/architect Ken Taylor and still has monthly exhibitions.
 ASCs The Cube has used this original template and looks to showcase new bespoke work from both artists from its Croydon studios and elsewhere.

Mira Hirtz

Basing her work on performative tools and somatic techniques, Mira Hirtz explores multi-sensory experiences and and articulations of our being-in-the-world. Looking at the intersections of art, health, ecology and science, her practice embraces the messiness of navigating life and dives into concepts of body, care as well as human and non-human interdependencies. Her work takes many different formats, from performance, installation and painting to curation and mediation. She graduated from the MFA Creative Practice at TL Conservatoire London and from the MA art research at University of Art and Design Karlsruhe. She co-curated the program series “How do we care?” at Badischer Kunstverein 2020, as well as the touring exhibition “Critical Zones. In Search of a Common Ground”, initiated by the ZKM | Karlsruhe, the Goethe-Institut South Asia, and Bruno Latour. Her recent exhibitions include “SOMA CITY” at We are Awareness in Art, Zurich; “Sensing P.: Kakosmos (after B. Latour)”, in “Every food is a landscape”, Milan and “Exploring notions of care: a performative workshop” at La Loge, Brussels. In her current research project, Mira Hirtz investigates the dialogue between her own experience of chronic health conditions, healing and art, developing a series of participatory scores, performative installations and collections of research.
