Myrstad, Miriam

text, video, action and objects

My work turns on two axes; language and action, which in turn revolve around each other, like moon and earth. Language acts and actions speak. Through text, actions and objects I reflect on topics of sociality and selfness, obedience and usefulness.

Lesval
Les Valeurs Personelles (2017) I asked a man to do something for me. If he ever was in SF, go to MOMA, find "Les Valeurs Personelles» by Rene Magritte, and touch it. He claimed abilities in psychometry. I asked him to get me one of Magrittes dreams.
Emel(edit)
Emel (2016) The last time I saw her Emel handed me a text by Patrick ffrench titled FRIENDSHIP, ASYMMETRY, SACRIFICE: BATAILLE AND BLANCHOT. “Read this, and then you will be ready for your next assignment”, she said, quite simply.
