Mici Boxell is a multi-media and transdisciplinary artist.
Her practice spans photography, sculpture, ceramics, installation, video, painting and performance.
Boxell is a collector of images and ideas.
As an adult she was found to have prosopagnosia and this has had a profound effect on her and how she identifies with her past and ongoing practice.
Working with photographic images both taken and found, her arts practice is an open-ended investigation into how we look, how we perceive, how we remember, the formation of mental images and the likenesses of things.
Her work often takes a public and then a private view of a concept, moving back and forth between intellectual inquiry and personal reflection.
She is most interested in exploring the boundaries that exist between thought and expression.
Mici Boxell graduated with a Bachelor of Creative Arts degree with Honours from La Trobe University in 2017 and is a current Masters Candidate at La Trobe investigating Temporal Horizons through video and still images.
Boxell is a founding member of TART Artist Run Initiative and Stage Manager and performing member of the CreateAbility Performance Ensemble. She has worked collaboratively in public art initiatives and with artists locally and abroad.
