“Sara Madandar is a US based artist from Iran. She was born in Tehran. She got her MFA at the University of Texas at Austin. She currently works in painting, sculpture,video and performance. Her work is mostly about the relationship of the human to their bodies and covers. She materializes the issues of existing in an in-between space through construction and deconstruction of the canvas. Her work evokes a sensation out of destruction and touches on the cultural displacements of corporeality. Her sculptures are objects related to the human body and are in the actual size of the body. Her video, video installations, and performances are influenced by her emigration and comparison between two cultures. She uses different elements to transmit her concepts such as patterns, hair as lines, women’s body and etc.” - Artist’s website
