Miruna Dragan



Miruna Dragan, In the sage telestic waters… I see…, 2019, Aluminium (and copper and zinc), detail.



Miruna Dragan (Bucharest, 1975, living in Calgary on traditional Blackfoot territory) interprets surreal geo{graphies{logies} and personal synchronicities through the reanimation of archetypes and myths with site responsive objects and installations. Recent exhibition venues include: Nickle Galleries at the University of Calgary (2017), Blackwood Gallery at the University of Toronto (2018), and Museo de la Ciudad de Queretaro (2019). Miruna is Associate Professor in the School of Visual Art at Alberta University of the Arts.

Operating within and between the material and the metaphysical, her works are shaped by themes of dispersion, immanence and transcendence. A number of Miruna's projects have been developed in natural and anthropogenic caves and mines (salt & coal), as well as historical sites across North America & Europe.

“In this work, the element Aluminum (atomic #13) is (re)presented with a wall-bound assemblage that complicates the relationship between our own body in space-time and the larger bodies we inhabit formed over geologic time. Suspended before a aluminium-leafed wall, water-cast aluminium forms recall the divination technique of molybdomancy, wherein molten metal is dropped into water and the resulting shapes, or their cast shadows, are interpreted as omens.Our bewilderment by the overlay of the intrinsic and symbolic values of such materials is both ancient and ongoing”. (MD)
