Sarah Rodigari’s work is an ongoing practice of wrong reading, continually ‘off-script’, Rodigari seeks to elaborate the gap between the performative and the social, creating text-based performances and installations which address the social and political potential of art. Often minor in scale and poetic in address, through site-specific encounters, Sarah’s work takes a variety of forms, from endurance actions, to performance scripts, sculpture, audio-visual, and text-based works, creating new readings from multiple sites and perspectives.Through strategies of humility, absurdity and contradiction, Rodigari's practice seeks to both render visible the given conditions of labour – the common sense that prevails, or the ‘script’ – and the potential for this script to be otherwise. Within Rodigari's work, ‘wrong’ becomes contested and contingent – perhaps resistance, perhaps critique, or something else all together. Rodigari has worked with and within various contexts and institutions. These include the National: New Australia Art, Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), the 20th Biennale of Sydney, Monash University Museum of Art, Melbourne International Arts Festival, ACCA, The Poetry Project (NYC) and SOMA (Mexico City). Rodigari holds a PhD in Creative Arts from the University of Wollongong and is a member of the collective Field Theory.
