Do You Know Your Middle? Miessi’s first solo exhibition, featuring new mixed media works by the artist.

6th July - 21st July
198 Gallery

The title references a phrase repeated by the artist’s mother from a young age, as she would part and braid Miessi’s hair. Archiving routines and cultural practices such as these through the pieces, Miessi’s work exists to preserve memories from formative years. Each piece documents and retells moments, creating a permanence to past experiences from Miessi’s life. The exhibition was accompanied with a playlist curated by the artists mother, which can be listened to here
