Mirelle Borra’s interest in urgent global subjects merges with her keen sense of aesthetic to create thought-provoking work. Using moving image, she engages with social and political topics to re-frame these matters in new ways. Mirelle seeks to examine structures of representation through a transnational perspective while staying in constant dialog with the context from which the work is derived. The main focus of her practice is where the personal and the political intersect. In 2017, she founded the online platform 6x6 project which is dedicated to the dissemination of artists’ moving image works, and to create an ever-growing network among peers: https://6x6project.com. Her work has shown internationally in film festivals and exhibitions, including the 20th London Short Film Festival (UK), 29th Sheffield DocFest (UK), 19th Vienna Shorts Film Festival (AT), 67th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen (DE), 28th International Short Film Week Regensburg (DE), 17th Athens Digital Arts Festival (GR), 3rd FRACTO Experimental Film Encounter, Berlin (DE), 39th Ars Electronica Festival, Linz (AT), 3rd Screen City Biennial, Stavanger (NO), and the 7th Berlin Biennial, KW Institute for Contemporary Art (DE) among others. Mirelle was born in the Netherlands, and after living in New York City for many years, she is currently based in Berlin.
