Angela Tiatia, (born in Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand, lives and work in Sydney, New South Wales)
Angela is a multi-disciplinary artist working across film, photography, video installation and performance.
In her work, she seeks to draw attention to the relationship between the construction and the representation of identities, to confront the commodification of the body, place and gender. Often using her own body in performative actions, she enacts tactics of resistance towards structures imposed upon her body and her environment to highlight systemically upheld inequalities. Through the lens of contemporary culture, she considers neo-colonialism’s impact on socio-political, cultural and economic displacement.
Recent exhibitions include: Personal Structures – Time – Space – Existence, 57th Venice Biennial, Venice, Italy; IMPACT: New Media Works by Michael Cook, Fiona Foley, Taloi Havini; Angela Tiatia, University of Technology, Sydney; and Darklands, Alaska Projects, Sydney, 2017.
Angela’s work has been published in Bodies That Matter, Indigenous Art: New Media and the Digital, Public 54, York University, Toronto, 2017. In 2017, she was a finalist in The Maddocks Art Prizes – NSW/ACT & VIC and the Paramor Art Prize, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, and the winner of the Best Artist Award at the FBi SMAC AWARDS, Sydney.
Angela is represented by Alcaston Gallery, Melbourne.
