Mira song is an interdisciplinary artist based in Vancouver BC and Seoul, South Korea and has exhibited throughout Canada, Seoul and Hong Kong. She holds a Master of Fine Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, a Certificate in Garden Design from UBC and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Korea National University of Arts in Seoul.
In her practice, Song explores natural and constructed public spaces, reframed through the embodiment of different senses that trigger memories and imagination. Anchored in her own memories and perceptions, her paintings and sculptural installations are manifestations of this transient nature of space and its elements—from which she hopes a viewer can extract his or her own experience unrestricted by the barriers between the real and the surreal. By transforming these spatial images through her work, Song attempts to explore complex relationships between architecture, perception, and imagination. Through this exploration, she hopes her work can open up a contemplative and imaginative perception of space through this relational process and that the interplay between the paintings, drawings, and sculptural installations evoke in the viewer their own series of contemplative moments as they pass through their own innerscape.
Song has been featured in the media and magazines including Vancouver Sun, La Source and Magenta Magazine. Her work is in private collections in Canada, United State and South Korea as well as corporate art collections in Aritzia Inc, Telus, Deloitte Art Collection and Microsoft Art Collection in Canada.
