Sasha Fishman is a sculptress, plastic enthusiast and an amateur biohacker. She works primarily in sculptural modes of object-making and installation, incorporating experimental media and living organisms into her works.
Fishman’s installations, photographs and objects are comprised of natural and artificial materials associated with tackiness and DIY culture, assembled into organic bodies that follow their own systems of logic. Invasive, excessive and powerful in presence, these forms teeter on the boundary between being parasitic, alive, and other-worldly. These small and large-scale forms oscillate in the believability of their presence in the world, reading as bodies but ultimately lacking mobility. The systems operating within them are seemingly futile, rendering these forms playful with an underlying sadness/melancholia.
Sasha holds a BFA in Studio Art from The University of Texas at Austin.
