Holly Muir is an artist who lives and works across Scotland. Her practice skirts around storytelling, using the graphic language of film and comics to articulate personal and historical narratives. These narratives often explore utopian tropes, the restorative capacities of work, and human-animal relationships through carpentry, print-making, and textiles. Muir also works in set design and construction and has trained at the Scottish National Opera, The Royal Opera House, The Royal Shakespeare Company, and Pinewood Creative (Pinewood Film Studios).
Productions include: Libuše, Bloomsbury Theatre, London (2019); Collision, Arcola Theatre, London & Greenwood Theatre, London (2017); and Liturgie, The Place, London (2017) & By Other Means, London (2016).
Group exhibitions include Song of the Husband, online exhibition and publication (2020); the Woon Foundation Prize, BALTIC 39, Newcastle (2016); the Seven Counties Open, OVADA, Oxford (2015). Website: cargocollective.com/hollymuir
