Sally Smart

Born 1960, Quorn, South Australia. Lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.

Sally Smart has long been concerned with the feminine identity from both a contemporary and historical perspective. Utilising collage, screen-printing, drawing and photography she creates illustrative, theatrical installations that employ a cinematic visual style. Sally Smart graduated from the South Australian School of Art in 1981 and completed postgraduate studies at the Victorian College of the Arts in 1988, followed by a Master of Fine Arts in 1991. Informed by feminist discourses surrounding psychoanalytic theory and the anti-art movements of Dada and Surrealism, Smart's installations explore corporeality, gender and identity politics. Major exhibitions include Surface Charge, Anderson Gallery, Richmond, USA, 2005; Shadow Farm, Wollongong City Gallery, New South Wales, 2003; Parameters Head: A La Ronde, Experimental Art Foundation, Adelaide, 2000; FamilyTreeHouse, Project Space, ARCO, Madrid, 1999; and Femmage, Shadows and Symptoms, Fukuoka Art Museum, Fukuoka, Japan, 1999.
