Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller

The Killing Machine and Other Stories 1995–2007

Janet Cardiff (*1957, Brussels, Canada). George Bures Miller (*1960, Vegreville, Canada). The artists live and work in Berlin and Grinrod, Canada.

Janet Cardiff. 1980: B.F.A., Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. 1983: M.V.A., University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada.

George Bures Miller. 1986: Graduated from Ontario College of Art.

This successful artistic duo has already participated in many national and international exhibitions, including one in 2002 at the National Gallery of Canada and in 2005 at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Cardiff/Miller are primarily known for their sound and space installations, such as their city walks on audiotape, whose sounds and noises create disorienting layered effects for the city flâneur. The Paradise Institute was similar. As a total installation supported by sound and music, it created the illusion of a turn-of-the-century cinema, and the artists received a prize for it at the 2001 Venice Biennale.

For our Collector’s Edition, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller have grouped twelve photographs taken in Canada into a suggestive traveling kaleidoscope—unfortunately, without an audio background. The group is titled Crosscountry—Hornby Island to Kelowna: Hornby Island is an island in the Pacific, along the latitude of Vancouver Island; Kelowna is on Okangan Lake, in the middle of a popular vacation area in British Columbia.

About the artists

The artists Janet Cardiff (*1957 in Brussels, Canada) and George Bures Miller (*1960 in Vegreville, Canada) have been working together since the mid-1990s, creating illusionary spaces in which the acoustic perception of sound, as well as its sculptural and physical qualities, play a role. More about the artists in the Hatje Cantz art dictionary »
