Marmoreum extends on Ujmaia’s interest in rethinking existing structures, objects and gestures through poetic sensibility and new materialist approaches to art making. Thinking in relation to language, Marmoreum will present a new ambitious large-scale work that considers marble as a valued metamorphic rock.
Sarah Ujmaia (b.1995) is a first generation Chaldean artist living and working on unceded Wurundjeri lands. Her practice is largely informed by the wide-reaching impacts of forced displacement and cultural re-writing related to the diasporic experience. Applying translational processes, she regenerates motifs, images and linguistic structures in her material-led approach to object making.
