Miriam Böhm

Miriam Böhm’s artistic practice parallels the work of contemporaries such as Eileen Quinlan and Sara VanDerBeek, who likewise stage photographs within the studio setting. Böhm nonetheless is differentiated by her acutely self-referential pictures, which she realizes by way of a rather involved circular process. The artist first neatly arranges and photographs simple objects; she then prints the image and places the photo in another composition, photographing the new arrangement yet again. Needless to say, these “picture within a picture” constructions present disorienting perspectives and confound spatial relationships, especially of the figure-ground correlation. They also profoundly complicate the viewer's experience of seeing.


Böhm was born in 1972. She studied at the Academy of Art in Vienna before pursuing postgraduate work at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. Böhm has been exhibiting her work since 2001, at venues such as the Foundation of Contemporary Arts in Zamora, the Aspen Art Museum, St. Louis’s Contemporary Art Museum, and the Prague Biennial, among other galleries around the globe.
