Angelica Mesiti

  • Splitting her time between Sydney and Paris, Angelica Mesiti is a video, performance, and installation artist of Italian origin. Her work unravels the personal histories and living cultures of particular locales through an anthropological lens versed in cinematic conventions and performance languages. She is especially interested in the way sounds, gestures, non-verbal languages, and rhythmic traditions are preserved, migrate across distances, and cohere diverse communities. Her past video and sound installations have explored the translation of traditional Asian and Muslim music in Parisian and Australian cities, the mediation and projections of dance performances in immigrant communities, and Algerian political ballad renditions of Classic rock music.
