Associate Professor, Drawing

Miruna Dragan is a post-conceptual artist whose work reflects themes of locality and dispersion through questions of imminence and transcendence. Operating within and between various modes of studio research including drawing, lens-based media, site-specific intervention and others, her work interprets surreal geographies through the reanimation of archetypes, myths and symbols.
