ALEKSANDRA MIR (b 1967) is a Swedish-American Citizen, born in Poland, raised in Sweden, educated in NYC and currently living in Palermo, Sicily. Aleksandra studied Media, Communications, Fine Art and Cultural Anthropology and her art merges all these disciplines. She has been involved with over 150 international exhibitions and public commissions since 1996 including the Biennale of Sydney, the Whitney Biennial, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. In 2006 she presented her first museum solo show at the Kunsthaus Zürich. Her technically and logistically elaborate project Plane Landing, which consists of a life-sized inflatable passenger jet which last year was staged at the Zürich airport and various landmark sites in central Paris brought Mir a great deal of international attention.
