Miler Lagos’ practice has as starting points dialogue and experimentation with materials, which manifest as catalyst for the central issues of his discourse.
He reflects on the relationship between images and objects, content and container. Wood and paper have served as mediums for representing his interest in the intersection of nature and culture. There is a profound concern with studying the way human beings have modeled their space or has been modeled by environmental and geographic conditions. Moreover, there is an intention of raising awareness about conservation of the environment and how we gradually turn nature into a resource to inhabit, into raw material, into merely a vehicle.
Miler Lagos’ work is present at the collections of MUAC Museo de Arte de la Universidad Autónoma de México, Harvard University, Bank of the Republic of Colombia, the Rubell Family Collection and CIFO Cisneros Fontalas Art Foundation, among others.
