Mia Boe in residence at Ace Hotel, Sydney

“I miss a lot of people and places. I get very sentimental and nostalgic. These works represent that feeling, that ever-present feeling you have when you are away from home or from those you love.” —Mia Boe

During a month-long residency at Ace Hotel Sydney, Mia Boe created a series of ink paintings on silk and a natural fibre hanging sculpture exploring that ever-present feeling of acknowledging lost loved ones and ancestors around you. Depicting spirit people in landscapes and domestic space, Boe’s work is influenced by her Butchulla and Burmese ancestry, folklore and the inheritance and “disinheritance” of these two cultures.
