The University of Maine Intermedia MFA program is pleased to announce the second presenter, Miranda Clark, for their Spring 2013 Visiting Artist series co-sponsored by the Cultural Affairs/Distinguished Lecture Series. The artist will present a public lecture on Tuesday February 26th at 7pm in Lord Hall on the University of Maine campus in Orono.
Miranda Clark’s practice references feminine archetypes found in fairytales, pop culture, and love ballads. Through photography, video, performance, and ongoing investigation, Clark manipulates the ritual standards of desire, fantasy, and consumption. Interested in where claims of truth intersect with the demands of fiction, Miranda has played the maiden, the bride, and the author of reclaimed stories. These experimental theaters of memory have progressed into a journey that has layers of being lost. It is a fiction. As she wonders in making and looking, she wonders about her personal narrative and how much of it is showing. She holds a BA in sociology and studio art from Colgate University and an MFA in new media from Transart Institute.
