Aleksandra Mir’s works take the form of social processes that are open to anyone who wishes to give the work meaning. She is known for her installations, self-published zines, books, posters and videos.

Mir’s lithograph for the ICA is based on one of the ‘Sharpie’ drawings which have been a central element of her practice in recent years. The edition takes the form of a printed picture mount, and the artist invites the owner to participate in the work by framing a photograph of their love object within the heart-shaped hole.
