Arif Satar’s background is layered with experiences of migrancy and border-crossing.
He understands the landscape as a site of fractures that spill across national boundaries to make connections beyond geographies. This ephemeral state of trans-national belonging is reflected in his art practice where a multiplicity of mediums are reconfigured dependently – to form a body of work that encompasses sculpture, stop motion animation, sound and text.
Arif Satar was born in the Island of Mozambique, Africa. Arif completed an Environmental Science degree in 1996 at Murdoch University, Perth. For the past twenty years he has undertaken community and public art projects for community facilities, educational and health institutions, housing projects and public spaces where he had the opportunity to work in creating artworks that are responsive to these settings.
