Mavi Phillips is an artist, filmmaker, photographer, and film curator who creates cathartic surrealist journeys that take into question society and reality. Her work intermixes photography, performance, experimental ethnography and narrative cinema to translates investigations into the identity of female sexuality, the interrelationship of spirituality, sexuality, and transcendence; and the borders created by society that define normality and reality.
Phillips’s performance art practice focuses on an ongoing project to document her life, and life itself, through photography and writing, which she shows in large prints and publications.
An autonomous filmmaker, Phillips is a writer, director, producer, cinematographer, and actor in her own international creative photo and video content, surrealist ethno-fictions, and narrative films under her company Orgone Productions. These works have sprawled across France, Italy, Hungary, Morocco, and the USA. She is in pre-production for her first feature film.
No matter what medium, Phillips wants her work to inspire women to find strength within and incite in everyone the freedom to be themselves.
