Sasha Grbich (SA) is a mid-career artist, writer and lecturer who works responsively with places and communities. An avid collector of things, found footage, sounds and stories; she is fascinated by the way art takes part in the politics of everyday life. Sasha approaches artworks as ecologies: unfinished events that perform with audience and in local environments. She lectures at the Adelaide Central School of Art in Video and Performance, Installation, and coordinates the Bachelor of Visual Art and Honours degrees. Grbich is a regular contributor to Artlink Magazine, amongst other critical review publications. In 2015 she completed postgraduate research at University of South Australia examining the operation of art making practice as a series of ‘Performative Encounters’. Grbich was commissioned with Kelly Reynolds to create the collaborative community project and installation Urban Sun Project for ACE Open as part of exhibition ‘Plenty’. She was awarded the 2018 Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship and through 2019 she is guest at Maumaus Art School Portugal, undertaking their independent study program. Upcoming projects: collaborative residency and exhibition with Kelly Reynolds for the SAUERBIER HOUSE Culture Exchange Program 2020 and On Elegance While Sleeping, curated by Andrew Purvis, Adelaide Central Gallery, June 2019
