about

 

Zamara was born in Australia, 1994. Living and working in Melbourne, after graduating with

Honours in Fine Art from RMIT she studying her Master of Contemporary art at The University

of Melbourne.  

 

 

Zamara deals with the unconscious; her practice explores notions of the human condition

and psychological experience. Working in the fields of sculpture, installation and

performance her process often involves the intimate production of hand made fabricated

sculptures. Her use of tactile materials, commonly fabrics and latex, draws similarities to the

body and skin-like surfaces. Zamara’s work uses gestural organic form, mimicking aspects of

the abject body and bodily functions, in this way her work generates its own dialogue

through body language, which is read against the space and the human body. Her practice is

formed through an interest in Psychology and human nature, focusing on the darker aspects

of the unconscious and difficulties in dealing with and understanding trauma, loss and pain.

 

Her practice aims to communicate a form of experiential understanding, through the viewers’

physical relation to and material familiarity with the work. Through her art Zamara seeks to

produce an empathetic response to sculptural forms and relationships, by creating

transitional objects onto which the unconscious may be projected. Her sculptural works

become a reflection of feelings and of psychological phenomenon,

a form of materialised therapy.
