Sara Madandar, born in Tehran, Iran, is a U.S. based artist. She received an M.F.A. from The University of Texas at Austin. Her painting, sculpture, video and performance works changed after moving to the United States, when she began to explore the body and culture. She explores the relationship of humans to their bodies and covers and materializes in-between space through construction and deconstruction of the canvas, evoking a sensation of destruction and touching on the cultural displacements of corporality. Her sculptures relate to the scale of the human body and her video work and performances are influenced by her emigration and the comparison of two cultures.
