Mia is interested in the post-natural landscape, visible sites where human interaction – be it personal, social, political, or financial – has altered or is in the process of rapidly changing the land, and thus our relationship to it. Her sculptural practice is driven by a causal sequence of explorative inquiries, prolific discoveries and fascinating collaborations. Her work makes connections between our intense material dependency and the accelerated environmental impact this creates.
Mia Feuer is a research driven interdisciplinary sculptor born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Mia received her BFA from the University of Manitoba in 2004 and her MFA in 2009 from the Department of Sculpture + Extended Media at Virginia Commonwealth University. Her work has been exhibited widely across North America including solo exhibitions at The Corcoran Gallery of Art- Washington DC, The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Locust Projects- Miami FL and The Esker Foundation- Calgary, AB. Most recently Mia’s work was included in the first ever female only exhibition at The Saatchi Collection- London, UK.
“Perhaps the greatest appeal of Feuer’s work is its complete lack of cynicism, even in those cases where it is inspired by tear gas, polluted oceans or other dangerous scenarios. The artist’s biography indicates someone who has often been in contact with deep human suffering, yet the resulting art is not shrill or moralistic. Instead, one gets the sense of a balanced observer whose first reaction to disaster is transfiguration rather than the teaching of prosaic lessons.”
