About Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller

Janet Cardiff and Georges Bures Miller are internationally exhibited Canadian artists who work and live in Berlin, Germany. They have collaborated for more than 15 years in producing complex audio-visual installations that range from small-scale videos to all-encompassing physical and sonic environments in which the manipulation of space and sound play equal parts in sculpting viewers’ experiences and emotions. They often draw upon the styles, techniques, and technologies of the theatrical arts and cinema to achieve multisensory engagement, eliciting a range of sensations and memories that suggest how everyday experiences are constructed by the human mind in relationship to the external filters-including media and other technical methods of representation-through which we view and construe reality. Their works seek to produce a compelling fantasy of real life while simultaneously dismantling our certainty that a single interpretation of reality is possible.
