German artist Marco Miehling’s multidisciplinary practice draws together - often in a single installation - concerns of ecology and the environment, industrial design, collaboration and performance and the globalisation of the art world. More recent works are activated by performers interacting bodily with the different stages or elements of his installations.

“It becomes our shared responsibility as the creatives, to imagine new ecological futures and new ways of working, and being together, across continents and cultures, but without travelling.”
