Sandra Selig

Sandra Selig was born in Sydney in 1972 and currently lives and works in Brisbane. Her poetic practice observes the cause and effect of natural phenomena such as wind, sound, light, and movement. Working with existing materials, forces and spaces, Selig produces large scale intricate installations and delicate works on paper, often through simple adaptation, subtraction, or ephemeral intervention.

In 2022, the first survey of Selig's work will be held at USC Gallery, Queensland before traveling to UNSW Galleries, Sydney. Other notable exhibitions include The Kaleidoscopic Turn, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Contemporary Australia: Women, Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane; and Sonic Spheres, Tarrawarra Museum of Art, Melbourne. Selig's work is held in major national collections including MONA, Hobart; The Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; The National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; Monash University, Melbourne; The National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; The Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane; University Art Museum, University of Queensland, Brisbane; and Queensland University of Technology Art Museum, Brisbane.
