Sarah Rodigari was a participating artist in the Australian Artists' Residency Program as part of Marina Abramović: In Residence, 2015.
Sarah Rodigari creates performances that address economies of exchange pertaining to socio-political engagement, shared authorship and new institutional critique. Working at the intersections of theatre, visual art and social practice, her method is responsive and context-specific. Recent projects take the form of lecture, text, video, collaboration and curation.
Rodigari has presented work at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; Melbourne International Arts Festival; South Project, Indonesia; PACT Zollverein, Germany; Centre for Contemporary Art Glasgow; The National Review of Live Art, UK; Anti-Contemporary Arts Festival, Finland, and SOMA, Mexico City. Sarah has a BA (Hons) in Sociology (UNSW), a Masters in Fine Art (RMIT) and is currently a PhD candidate in Creative Art at the University of Wollongong. She recently published a chapter on performance art and sympathetic magic for the publication Travel and Transformation and co-edited the book Going Down, an anthology of contemporary Sydney performance. Rodigari is a founding member of the collective Field Theory, who make and support art projects that cross disciplines, shift contexts and seek new strategies for intervening in the public sphere.
