Mini Bio (1)
Margarida Sardinha is an independent artist born in Lisbon, 1978, who studied, lived and worked in London for ten years. Her cross-media work comprises site-specific installation, film, animation, text, sound, photography, and study drawings, which are by definition kinetic and geometrically abstract. Its main focus is the production of abstract optical illusions a propos the spiritual in art thus making concept parallels with literature, philosophy, religion and science. Using these perceptions she searches for spiritual/psychological stages of consciousness and relates them with cycles of individual or universal growth. Archetypal geometry, dynamic symmetry, symbology and colour being the basis of the work are explored in a semiotic process of building, photographing and animating these "signs" that are understood as imprinted/innate forms of consciousness which enable us to see, hear and speak aesthetically.
