Sancintya Mohini Simpson
Sancintya Mohini Simpson’s practice examines the complexities of racial and migratory experiences within Australia. Informed by her heritage as a First-Generation Australian of Indian-Anglo descent, Simpson’s work often focuses on her own family and community’s experiences–unravelling the untold stories of an existence on the periphery. Through painting, photography, video, performance, prose, and sound, Simpson’s work creates conversations and tells stories to critique contemporary Australian culture, and colonisations problematic histories.
Simpson graduated with a Bachelor of Photography with Honours from Queensland College of Art, Griffith University (2014). Her work has been exhibited widely at various galleries including: Metro Arts (Brisbane), Griffith University Art Gallery (Brisbane), Queensland Centre for Photography (Brisbane), Jan Murphy Gallery (Brisbane), UQ Art Museum (Brisbane), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (Gold Coast), James Street Precinct (Institute of Modern Art) (Brisbane), John Curtin Gallery (Perth), Gaffa Gallery (Sydney), Ipswich Art Gallery (Ipswich), Seventh Gallery (Melbourne) and Boxcopy Contemporary Artspace (Brisbane).
