Siena Hart

Adopting a collaged approach to the presentation of visual and metaphysical research, Hart provokes shared, but unique senses of intimacy and relation by probing audience’s fixed notions of subjectivity, identity and meaning; carving out a space between the universal and subjective real. With a focus on outward manifestations of embodied experience, vulnerability, anxiety, and the dialogue between the real and the imagined, Hart invites audiences to challenge the architecture of their own identities, perception, and memory.

Hart graduated 2018 with First-Class Honours at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith.

Her current research looks at the intersections of the unknown and known, and the possibilities of myth-making as method.

In 2015 Siena completed a summer residency with the New York School of Visual Art (USA), and has completed artist-in-residences with In-Residence (Australia) in 2017, and Soft Space (Netherlands) in 2018. She has exhibited in various ARIs and galleries in Australia, including PoP Gallery, Kunstbunker, Post Datum, Testing Grounds, Ventolin Artspace and the QLD Centre for Photography as well as the Brisbane Feminist Festival (One Woman Project) and Dark MOFO festival (The Void, Tasmania).
