Mia Salsjö is an artist and composer who orchestrates multi-disciplinary art projects, encompassing drawing, music composition, text, performance, video, and textile-based works. ‘Modes of Translation’ is a video installation is based at and inspired by the National Schools Complex in Havana (a UNESCO heritage site commissioned by Fidel Castro in the early 60s), she felt a strong connection between her music and the architecture. The School of Ballet building in particular, with its interplay of vaults and domes, suggest to Salsjö a sense of organic flow underpinned by structure. Inspired by the curved archways at the entrance to the School, Salsjö created a music composition originally performed within the architecture, and now presented as a film alongside a live music score at Latrobe Regional Gallery.
