Mia Salsjö is an Australian artist and composer of Albanian-Swedish descent. Salsjö orchestrates multi-disciplinary art projects, encompassing drawing, music composition, text, performance, video, and textile-based works. Her practice is grounded in complex code-based systems. The systems are devised by Salsjö as a means of linking diverse media to an underlying linguistic system. It is through this process that Salsjö reflects on the elusive nature of communication – its potentialities, triumphs, failures, past, present and future 

Mia Salsjö developed The Quietude, a composition created from the built form of The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne. Responding to the detailed drawings, architects’ annotations and build material selections, Salsjö translates and interprets these hand-drawn and machine-made lines, transforming them into a code. The musical composition emerges in the spaces between the architectural plans, The Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and the artist’s method of interpretation. 

Her work has been performed and presented in many exhibitions, most recently A Score for Fed Square, in Melbourne 2022, Modes of Translation at the 13th Bienal de la Habana in Cuba 2019 and The Score at Ian Potter Museum of Art, University of Melbourne in 2017. She currently holds one of the prestigious studio residencies at Gertrude Contemporary in Melbourne, Australia.
