Ilona Sagar ob

Ilona Sagar, lives and works in London. Using a diverse range of media spanning moving-image, text, performance and assemblage, she has formed a body of work, which responds to the social and historic context found in the public and private spaces we inhabit. A significant aspect of her practice is

the broad cross-disciplinary dialogue generated through collaboration with a

range of art and scientific disciplines; including dance, architecture and

neurology. She has a practice that explores the link between language,

surface, technologies and the body through our increasingly mediated

encounters in social, political and experiential space. Illusion and material [dis]honesty set the stage for works which seek to seduce, alluding to something familiar yet other.
