About Miwa Matreyek

Miwa Matreyek is an animator, director, designer, and performer based in Los Angeles.
She has been an internationally touring independent artist since 2010.

Matreyek creates live, staged performances where she interacts with her animations as a shadow silhouette, at the cross section of cinematic and theatrical, fantastical and tangible, illusionistic and physical. Her work exists in a dreamlike visual space that makes invisible worlds visible, often weaving surreal and poetic narratives of conflict between man and nature. Her work exists both at the realm of the hand-made and tech. She travel as a one woman show, often incorporating artist talks and workshops.

Infinitely Yours 2019

Infinitely Yours explores global warming, the anthropocene, and the vastly changing earth.
This piece attempts to physicalize and emotionalize the non-stop barrage of news streaming in through our screens, of environmental transformation that we can’t seem to hit pause or rewind on. Miwa takes on plastics in the oceans, de-forestation, food crisis, drought, super storms and much more in a cacophony of dream-like, kaleidoscopic imagery.

This World Made Itself 2013

This World Made Itself is a visually rich journey through the history of the earth, from the
universe’s epic beginnings to the complex world of humanity. The piece is at once scientific
(like flipping through a children’s encyclopedia), and emotional, surreal, and dream like.
Some notable presentation of this work include Lincoln Center (New York), MOMA (New
York), Sundance Film Festival New Frontiers (Park City), SFMoMA (San Francisco), Carnegie
Museum of Natural History (Pittsburgh), TheaterFestival Boulevard (Netherlands), and
