Canadian artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller live and work in Grindrod, British Columbia. The artists have been collaborating since 1995, and are internationally recognized for their immersive multimedia works. Incorporating dramatic audio tracks into their visually striking installations, the artists create engaging and transcendent multisensory experiences that draw the viewer into ambiguous and unsettling narratives.
The artists recently presented a large exhibition of their installations at ARoS Aarhus Art Museum in Aarhus, Denmark, and in 2002-2003 a major survey show of their works toured to MoMA PS1, New York; The Musée d'Art Contemporain, Montreal; the Castello Rivoli, Turin; and the Astrup Fearnley Museet in Oslo. The Infinity Machine, a site-specific commission by Cardiff and Miller, is on view at the Menil Collection in Houston, TX through 2015. The artists have had solo shows at international venues including the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; the Park Avenue Armory, New York; Haus der Kunst, Munich; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; Modern Art Oxford; and the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona. Representing Canada at the 2001 Venice Biennale, Cardiff and Miller received the Biennale's Premio Prize and Benesse Prize.
A new installation by Cardiff and Miller will premiere in Soundscapes: Listening to Paintings at The National Gallery, London (July – September 2015), and the artists will participate in A Brief History of Human Kind at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem (May – December 2015) and Full House at the Molsdorf Palace in Erfurt, Germany (June – September 2015).
