Galleri Astley, Sweden.
Opened October 2nd 2016.
The exhibition at Galleri Astley portrays recent works on paper, but Mireya Samper also works with sculpture and site-specific installations.
Mireya Samper (b. 1964) graduated with DNSEP (Diplome National Supérieur d’Expression Plastique) from Ecole d’Art de Luminy, Marseille 1993 after she studied at the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts. As a creator of installations her work supersedes the identity as sculptor or painter, working parallel in two and three dimensions for museums or in-situ. With ease she creates poetical, minimal works that are either ephemeral or carved in stone. Pulling together prima matera into concepts of time and space her oeuvres create connections between the natural elements of water, light, wind, stone and consciousness.
