Mimi Seery is a multimedia artist, creating public installations such as sculpture, mural and compositions using natural elements. After (BA) Fine Art, she travelled extensively through Asia to investigate the diversities and commonalities between Eastern and Western cultures, one commonality of which was the repeated intrusion of advertising on the landscape. This influenced her to study advertising, and the principals of how the subject uses psychology for persuasion. Her work investigates social isolation caused by contemporary expectations on the individual and society. She seeks to dilute these insecurities by incorporating these same advertising principles into her practice.
Seery was recipient of ICADs Upstarts award for rising creatives in Ireland and has received public art commissions from Dublin and Westmeath County Councils and project funding from the Arts Council of Ireland. Her works have been widely exhibited, including the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Revision Festival Belfast and Galway Arts Centre. She is currently artist in residence at Abbey Road Studios Athlone.
For side projects she creates campaign concepts for charities engaged in social change.
