About the artist: 
Mirjam Spoolder received a grant supported by Pro Helvetia - Swiss Arts Council and IAAB / Ateliermondial in Basel, Switzerland for a residency in Delhi, India. The work Nine Times Nine, comprising of 9 images is an outcome of her stay in Delhi where she has had the possibility to work, develop and create her artistic work further.

Born in the Netherlands, Mirjam has lived and worked in Basel, Switzerland since 2007. She studied sculpting at the art Academy in Enschede and Theatre in Rotterdam. Finally, after moving to Switzerland, she finished her education in Master of Fine Arts in Basel in 2010. Over the years Mirjam has developed a way of combining three mediums in one form of art: sculpture, design and performance art. She reflects art into fashion design by producing individual art pieces and transforms them into performance art. Through photography she tries to capture those three mediums together in one image.

At FOCUS Mirjam presents Nine Times Nine, a series of 9 photographs which represent the nine districts of Delhi. Next Mirjam will develop nine wearable objects out of these patterns. With this work Mirjam aims to crossover four different mediums into one form of art: photography, design, sculpture and performance art.

Partners: FOCUS Photography Festival Mumbai 2015 and Bombay Electric.
