A DISTINCTIVE artist is exhibiting her work in a new exhibition at mima in Middlesbrough.

Georgina Starr rose to prominence in the early 1990s and uses video, performance, sculpture, writing and sound in her work.

Her exhibition "I, Cave," takes the visitor through cosmic vaults and obscure corridors in a moving image work, The Birth of Sculpture, 2015.

The artist has also invited the female gallery assistants at mima to play an active role in the installation, channeling words, voices and sounds into the gallery.

mima Director, Alistair Hudson, said: “mima was part built on the ceramic heritage of Middlesbrough so it’s a great pleasure to welcome such a unique artist whose career started in the field of sculpture and ceramics. The exhibition will provide a really engaging experience, visitors can expect to be swept up in the magical nature of the show.”

Recently Georgina Starr’s works have been displayed at Tate Britain, Glasgow International, Centre Pompidou-Metz, and FRAC Franche-Comte.

I, Cave opens on 7 April. Members of the public are invited to join Georgina for an opening performance on Thursday (April 9) from 5.30pm – 8.00pm.
