Hollie Miller is a visual artist working in performance, moving image, photography and sound. Her corporeal works are site-specific, intimate and time-based. In placing emphasis on recording live performances, Miller suggests that our everyday actions never cease and can be crystallized through the digital as ‘living fossils’.

 

Using her own body as a vessel of transgression and subversion, Miller’s work is informed by the history of women’s self-representation. She is particularly interested in vulnerability as a form of resistance and how this engenders our capacity for empathy in relation to the other. Through her work, Miller aims to critique and disrupt the capitalist portrayal of women by the commercial industries.

 

Hollie Miller has an MA in Fine Art Performance from The Royal College of Art (2016) with initial conservatoire training in dance and somatic practice (2007-10). Her work has been presented nationally and internationally in museums, galleries, festivals in performance art, fine art and land art.
