LIVES AND WORKS
DATE OF BIRTH
Hayley Millar Baker is a First Nations woman and research-based artist who uses photography and film to abstract and interrogate the way memories are made through acts of remembering and misremembering. She reflects upon the potential for personal recollections and historical accounts to become improvised and embellished. Millar Baker explores human experiences through a lens that is non-exclusive and non-linear. Her perspective is connected within memory and contemporary storytelling.
