About Harland Miller
In 2008 Miller curated a group exhibition, You dig the tunnel, I'll hide the soil to mark the bicentenary of the birth of Edgar Allen Poe. Staged across two venues, White Cube Hoxton and Shoreditch Town Hall, Miller exhibited several new works in 2008, including an installation in Hoxton Square that deceived many visitors. I Was Always Good at Finding Things I comprised seven live forensic figures inside a cordoned area, examining it for evidence of a mysterious crime. In the following year Miller turned his attention to the police campaign mounted against the infamous "Yorkshire Ripper" in 1978 that had been misconstrued by the hoax letters and tapes sent by John Samuel Humble a.k.a Wearside Jack from the North East. For his exhibition at the BALTIC, Miller painted a series of large billboards entitled The Consequence of a Failed Illusion (West Yorkshire Police Public Information Campaign) which, over time, had been ripped to reveal adverts, catch-phrases, and imagery amongst samples of Wearside Jack's writing or emergency number to call and listen to his voice.
Miller has participated in group shows at the Royal Academy in London, Kunsthalle in Mannheim, Germany, and the ICA London. His solo exhibitions include shows at White Cube, Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York, and the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Artin Gateshead.Read Less
