Sangeeta Sandrasegar

Born 1977, Brisbane. Lives and works Melbourne.

Sangeeta Sandrasegar was born in Brisbane of Malaysian and Australian parents, and spent her childhood growing up between both countries. In 1987 her family settled in Melbourne where she currently lives and works.

In 2010, Sandrasegar returned to Melbourne after a stint working and travelling overseas. Her exploration of India and Australia, as personal sites of both homecoming and ancestry, and as nations with related colonial histories, propels her current projects. Her practice is centred round postcolonial and hybridity theories and draws strongly from her mixed heritage. Sandrasegar is interested in the many ways the structures of culture, sexuality and identity are intertwined in contemporary culture and in interpreting and representing these interconnections.

Sandrasegar has exhibited nationally and internationally since 2000. Recent solo exhibitions include The scaffold called the Motherland Spews Infinite Grace, Murray White Room, Melbourne (2012); White Picket Fences In The Clear Light, Gallery 4A, Sydney (2009); Untitled (All four hundred…) ArtBeijing with Mori Gallery, Sydney (2008); Theatre of the Oppressed, Johnston Gallery, Perth (2006); and Goddess of Flowers, Mori Gallery, Sydney (2003).

Group exhibitions include Creepy And Divine: The Secret of The Snake, Africa Museum, Netherlands (2012); And the Falchion Passed Through His Neck, Latitude 28, New Delhi (2011); New Acquisitions In Context, MCA, Sydney (2010); Slash: Paper Under the Knife, Museum of Arts and Design, New York (2009); On the Field of Truth on the Battlefield of Life, Korkos Gallery, Hong Kong (2008); Stick and Move, Frey Norris Gallery San Francisco (2007); and Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane (2006).

Sandrasegar’s work is held in a number of private and public collections, including the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane; University of Western Australia, Perth; and BHP Billiton and HSBC Bank (Australia).
