Helen Mirra’s art practice is based in walking, primarily in the mountains, in nature. But also cities could be a place for her walks – as for example in the exhibition series „gehend, Field Recordings (1-3)“ Mirra did in 2011 in Kunst Werke Berlin, Bonner Kunstverein and Haus Konstruktiv in Zurich.
Her works are generated from making these walks – her perceptive experiences in the landscape, and the activity of her body. They develop in parallel. Not only is moving, walking, fundamental to Mirra’s work, but the places where the walks happen are essential elements.
Helen Mirra work was shown in solo exhibitions at Renaissance Society, Chicago, Kunst Werken, Berlin, Haus Konstruktiv, Zürich and Berkley Art Museum. Mirra participated in the 50th Venice Biennial, the 20th Sao Paulo Art Biennial and the 12th Havana Biennial.
