Sharifah Emalia Al-Gadrie is a multidisciplinary artist & community development worker based in nipaluna/Hobart, lutruwita/Tasmania.

 

 Her creative practice is responsive and explores belonging and cultural heritage in contemporary Australia, drawing on intersectional feminist theory and lived experience as an Asian-Australian woman. In her work she aims to decentralise Eurocentric perceptions of femininity and heritage and emphasise the importance of agency in self-representation.

 

Emalia's work is both research and process driven and is based in mediums including painting, textiles, installation and photography.
