Lisa Sammut’s practice encompasses sculpture, light, video and installation.

Using a wide range of media, her poetic works oscillate between notions of perspective, belonging and cosmic time. She has exhibited widely in Australia, undertaking several recent large-scale projects; including new work for The National 2021: New Australian Art, at the Art Gallery of NSW (2021); 20:20, Murray Art Museum Albury (2020); and HIGH LOOM, Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, Sydney (2019). She has completed commissions for both public and private spaces including Time Forms, City of Sydney (2019) and Waiting Room, University of New South Wales (2019). Her work has been recognised in several prizes including the John Fries Award, UNSW Galleries (2018) and Ramsay Art Prize, Art Gallery of South Australia (2021) as well as featured in publications including Artlink, Artist Profile and Art Guide Australia.

 

In Residence at Bundanon

My residency project will include research, writing and studio experimentation with new glass objects recently created during a Canberra Glassworks artist residency (eggs, spirals, suns, mountains and water droplets) with sound, photography, moving image and light in space towards the development of a new body of work for exhibition in 2023.
