About the Artist: Sarra Tzijan is an Indian-Australian artist originally from Melbourne currently based at JamFactory in Adelaide, South Australia.
Tzijan’s practice spans sculpture, jewellery and design, focusing on the combination of traditional craft hand skills with contemporary art.
There is a strong reference to illustration that featured more prominently early in her career. Tzijan often treats the metal like paper, marking it in a way that is intuitive and spontaneous.
Tzijan often brings in other hands, voices and materials in her processes, acknowledging the importance of others in the making.
Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the traditional custodians of the ACT and surrounding areas. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this country and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region. We aim to respect cultural heritage, customs and beliefs of all Indigenous people.
