Hollie Miller uses her body as an activated and politicised site, bringing charged materials to it to envisage ‘insideness’ and externalise the subconscious. She makes site-responsive and intimate time-based work both live with the audience as witness and in isolation in derelict buildings and remote landscapes with her camera as witness. Following her performances, sculptural objects, material traces and clothing are often left in the gallery as artefacts that haunt the space in the afterlife with late viewers. She regularly collaborates with musician Craig Scott to create a hyperreal sound world that heightens the intensity of her imagery across performance and film.
She has been awarded residencies at NAIRS Contemporary Art Center (Switzerland), Serlachius Museum (Finland) & La Ira de Dios (Argentina). Select performances include: MEM Experimental Festival Bilbao (ES), Land Art Biennale Art Safiental (CH), Revolve Performance Art Days (SE), London’s Biennale of International Performance Art & Noise, Apulia Land Art Festival (IL) and 100 Years DADA (JP).
In July 2022 she was invited to be artist in residence at the prestigious The Watermill Center founded by Robert Wilson.
