Alisha Mir 


Private View: 06.04.2017, 6.30-9.00pm

Alisha Mir creates an environment where the uncanny is the reality of that world ‘inside’ the drawings and the surfaces they lay upon. Interstitial hybrids are real here and the work is a freeze frame of a dream-like trance or state that appears almost ghost like, ephemeral. Mir’s work consists of acid etchings on steel; she has been interested in the ‘fantastic’ relating to the uncanny...which to her is an oscillation between what I there and what is created, she find the in-between state quite curious, the world of human- animal hybrids play an important part in her work.
The way in which Mir has used steel, as the viewer you will be presented with the work face to face and will see an illustration straight away but not all at once as the wall sculptures demand that you move along or step back in order to fathom it. She deliberately tampers with the surface - there is interference when viewing the work that relies on the light or lack thereof, this gives a lenticular holographic illusion to the work.

Venue ( Address ): 

The Muse gallery

The Muse gallery was established by artists, to support emerging contemporaries  by combining creative and commercial concepts under one roof.

Subject to a successful application, we also offer exhibition space to more established artists at a nominal commission. With limited slots per year, we look to our panel of affiliated artists and esteemed professionals to elect shows and offer comprehensive appraisals to those proposals still in need of refinement. 

Throughout the year, we also open our doors to community arts projects, musicians, film makers and live performers to fill the calendar with events from 'Sound art’ to ‘Cult film’ evenings and associated seminars.

Our residency program (only BA and MA graduates need apply) continues to offer a subsidised platform for candidates, with a group and solo show during their time with us. 

We work towards both public and private sector funding for our residents and visiting artists, with professional development working along side our team during visiting shows hosted throughout the year.

(AIR commissions are discretionary) 

Since established in 2003, we have continued to offer graduates and visiting artists improved conditions for arts practice and the exhibition of work and will endeavour to continue with 'artists for artists' at the heart of our organisation.  

So for now, we hope you enjoy the extraordinary cast hosted on this site and visit us down the 'Bella' in the near future to see it all in super 3D HD. 

Nothing beats a 'face to face' after all.
