Mira Calix




Mira Calix is an award winning artist and composer based in the United Kingdom. Music and sound, which she considers a sculptural material, are at the center of her practice. Her work explores the manipulation of the material into visible, physical forms through multi-disciplinary installations, sculpture, video and performance works. Calix’s practice is deliberately disjunctive, allowing research, site, and subject to influence a fluid choice of materials and mediums.

Mira has been commissioned and exhibited works and performances with many leading international cultural institutions, festivals and ensembles including the London Sinfonietta, the Globe, the Royal Shakespeare Company, Carriageworks, MONA, Performa, Barbican, Lincoln Center the Manchester International festival and the London Olympics amongst others.

As well as solo artworks, Mira is a vociferous collaborator, working with visual artists, scientists, architects, dancers and musicians from other disciplines. Recently Mira has composed soundtracks for theatrical productions Coriolanus and Julius Caesar for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

In 2017 launched her online Portal, a space for music, conversation and material works in conjunction with Warp Records with whom she is signed.
