INSIDE THE GALLERY (AUSTRALIA) - SANGEETA SANDRASEGAR: CROSSING CULTURES
Sangeeta Sandrasegar’s art practice is centred on hybridity theories, and explores her life in Australia as an artist of Malaysian, Indian and Australian heritage, and the relationship between migrant communities and homelands.
Her practice, including her highly regarded work with paper cutouts, has engaged with shadows as an ephemeral motif symbolising the movement of cultures and people. Recently too, Sangeeta’s work has involved the dying of large flowing fabric panels, with a particular focus on the nature and message of colours, particularly INDIGO
Good friend of this podcast Pedram Khosronejad (Adjunct Professor at the School of Social Sciences at Western Sydney University) spoke to Sangeeta via Zoom, and asked her about the nature of her work, the strong international influences, and the manner by which curators, gallerists and artists work together.
